The Iowa GSA Network is a new program of Iowa Safe Schools, with the mission of empowering students to create safe spaces in Iowa schools through youth activism and community support.

It is designed to provide resources and support to LGBTQ and allied students in Iowa, as well as educators and GSA advisors.

The Network connects GSAs across the state, and assist students interested in starting a GSA get their group off the ground.
