Task Force Updates

Medford Task Force Gathering

The second Task Force Gathering happened in Medford on Saturday, May 13 in the Medford Public Library. Although partners, Lotus Rising and OSSCC, prepared for 30 people, we ended up with only 7 individuals who attended. Those of us who planned the event were disappointed, but we ended up having a very productive planning session that will guide work for Lotus Rising and OSSCC.

Two of the participants were high school teachers and GSA Advisors. We learned that GSAs in the area want to get together to learn from one another and to socialize, so plans are being made to meet this need. We shared resources with one another, had a serious discussion about youth suicide, and promised to continue working with one another.
