Reid Barden, a high school senior from Henrico, has been selected by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to attend its fifth annual Safe Schools Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC. Barden was selected to participate in the Summit because of his previous involvement with safe schools advocacy. As a co-president at his high school’s Unite Club, Barden helped organize events collaborating with the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities. In addition, he helped organize a Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program for incoming freshman students. Attendees at the Summit will participate in workshops where they will learn about federal legislation, advocacy and organizing skills, and develop strategies to continue their work on advocating for safe schools at the local, state and federal levels. Participants will also meet with their elected officials on Capitol Hill about the importance of safe schools issues.
