Training for Queer Youth

The Ruckus Society teamed up with the San Francisco LGBT Center Youth Program to present two trainings for queer youth in both NVDA and Creative visuals, January 20th and 27th, 2010.

Ruckus trainer Lynn S. had this to say about the trainings:

"The trainees were an inspired and dedicated group whose investment in the rights of LGBT youth and their struggles with homelessness was paramount.

Over two nights we developed basic NVDA awareness and basic de-escalation skills. We worked first on the strategy and then the tactics of NVDA. This creative group whipped out a banner in no time and brainstormed endless ideas for actions to rally others to their cause."
