LGBTQ Youth of Color Organizing Summit
Wednesday, February 3, 2010
FIERCE will host the first-ever, day-long LGBTQ Youth of Color Organizing Summit in Dallas, TX at the Creating Change Conference on February 3, 2010. The summit is one way that FIERCE is putting recommendations from our new report, Coming Out, Stepping Up, into action—particularly the call on LGBTQ youth to increase our capacity to organize through developing effective campaign strategies, membership base-building, and deepening political consciousness.
The summit will build the grassroots organizing skills of LGBTQ youth of color who increasingly face homelessness, lack of safe public spaces, and violence. Since LGBTQ youth are more than just recipients of services, we hope to share approaches for how organizations can build the political power of LGBTQ youth of color through membership-led grassroots organizing campaigns and leadership development.

Tabata Tuesday (TT) is an event that goes on at the FIERCE office where members and even some staff get together to work out.
Izumi Tabata was a researcher that invented the workout theory. He believed that instead of doing normal exercises (ex. running) for long periods of time, it’s better to push our bodies to the max for short periods of time and take little breaks in between. For example: Do as many jumping jacks as you can in one min and take a 10 second break and do that over again for 4 minutes.
The goal is to push your body and see how much you can do. It is like a competition with yourself. In each session, we keep track of our repetitions and try to beat our last round each time.
