The Massachusetts Commission on GLBT Youth invites you to attend the upcoming Public Hearings on the opportunities and challenges facing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth in the Commonwealth.

 

The Commission is an independent agency that recommends effective policies, programs, and resources for GLBT youth to thrive. In its first year as a Commission, members held statewide hearings on the health and welfare of GLBT youth. Now, in honor of its 20th anniversary and continued commitment, the Commission welcomes youth, families, schools, and communities to provide testimony; to both celebrate successes and illuminate areas where more work needs to be done. Commission members are eager to hear from residents across the Commonwealth who are interested in participating in these Hearings.

 

Youth and adults of all races, genders, abilities, and experiences are encouraged to testify. The Public Hearings will be conducted on:
