Where to find a DC GSA

Following is a list of DC GSA school clubs that have registered — as encouraged — with SMYAL’s (Supporting and Mentoring Youth Advocates and Leaders) D.C. Regional GSA Network.

With school not yet in session, SMYAL representatives say there are some instances in which a club may become inactive from one school year to the next, so the organization updates information as it’s received. SMYAL conducts workshops for GSAs on transitioning leadership so that GSAs stay active regardless of when their founders graduate.

“At the beginning of each year, we do a registration drive, so ideally GSAs re-register each year to avoid confusion,” SMYAL’s Anika Warner said in an e-mail.

This list is not meant to be exhaustive as Warner says she’s heard of some clubs in the region that have not registered. Visit later in the school year for an updated list or contact a school directly to inquire about the possible presence of a GSA on a school not listed here.
