Day of Service

GLOBES, Lambda Alliance and Clarke Central GSA Collaboration

November 13th, 9:00-12:00

We will have our first collaborative day of service! I am so excited, so mark your calendars now and come out to enjoy some inter-generational volunteerism. We will be volunteers during the Veterans Day Clean up at Brooklyn Cemetery. Brooklyn Cemetery, established in 1882, is a historic burial site for African Americans. We are clearing overgrowth, undergrowth, invasive plants, fallen limbs, trees, and weeds from the grave sites of those interred in the Brooklyn Cemetery. Hands On Northeast Georgia will provide some manual tools, water and snacks. At the conclusion of our work, we will have a small ceremony to honor those servicemen buried there. The Brooklyn Cemetery main entrance is on West Lake Drive, however, easier and best access is from the School Park Area behind Alps Rd Elementary School and Clarke Middle School. You will need to wear protective clothing, long sleeves, pants, and closed shoes. Bring your gloves if you have them. If you are interested in participating, please rsvp at

Documentary Premier:

We Exist: Collective Memories of Trans, Queer, and Questioning Youth

Thursday, November 11th @ 7pm Miller Learning Center 171

Please save the date for Anneliese Singh & Corey Johnson’s companion documentary We Exist: Collective Memories of Trans, Queer, and Questioning Youth. A follow up to Be There for Me, this film focuses on the high school experiences of transgender, queer, and questioning youth. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the film makers. This is a prelude to programming for Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov.20th) the week of November 15th.
