It Gets Better:  The Power of Online Gaming Communities

Online gaming and the advent of Twitch has formed living, breathing communities of like-minded individuals who go on to form meaningful relationships. These online gaming communities can be vital resources for youth who feel as though they cannot find a community to reach out to in the physical world. Join us as we discuss the role that online gaming can play in not only spreading the message that It Gets Better, but also helping make it so.
