Be Brave, Be You LGBTQ+ Student Leadership Conference

On May 19, 2018 Stonewall Foundation of Greater Sacramento was proud to co-sponsor Sacramento City Unified School District’s 7th annual Be Brave, Be You LGBTQ+ student leadership conference at the Met High School. Attended by more than 30 students from SCUSD middle and high schools, the theme reflected was “No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.”  

Highlighting an interactive history gallery, with performance artists and many occasions for personal expression, students were afforded multi-media learning opportunities focusing on social movements.  An advocacy panel, organized by the Foundation with the generous assistance of participants Ebony Eva Harper, Rodney Nickens, Deepen Gagneja and Carrie Martin Holmes, shared rich personal narratives to reinforce the continued significance of LGBTQ advocacy and leadership by our community.
