69. PRISM: Pride, Race, Identity, Sexuality and Movement

District No. 5 (Southeast Kootenay)

As shared by project leadership: This project involves the Gay Straight Alliance club (PRISM) at Sparwood Secondary School. This club is open to any students at the school and we hope to foster inclusion in the school and local community through community contributions. We also hope to integrate First People’s ways of knowing into our GSA and school. This is a safe space for all members of our school community and a powerful opportunity for students and staff to make social change. Members of PRISM plan and administer activities that are designed to show pride and build a sense of belonging within the school. It is our hope that we can host a variety of activities that involve students in the school as well as community members.
