Do you want to learn practical ways you can help end police violence? Do you want to connect with other LGBTQTS youth who are working to keep our communities safe? Join us! Over the last year and a half, BreakOUT and Streetwise and Safe (SAS) have been working to create the first national network for LGBTQTS youth who are engaged with 'Know Your Rights' work around interactions with law enforcement.
