Guest Speaker Meeting is a Lunchtime Event
February 20 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Tucker Room at the Mount Saint Helena Golf Course in Calistoga
This is a brown bag lunch meeting.
The topic will be about LGBTQ. The speaker is Eduardo Rivera, Program Coordinator.
Eduardo is responsible for the development, training and support of LGBTQ Connection’s youth leadership teams in Napa County. The Youth Leadership Teams work with the coordinator to implement community events, advocate for policy change, host youth events, facilitate regular LGBTQ youth get-togethers (Q*Youth at VOICES Napa and to be named in Calistoga). Eduardo in addition trains schools and districts to support LGBTQ students, empowers and networks middle and high school-based Gay Straight Alliance club student leaders and teacher advisors, and connects struggling families to critical information and supportive resources.
What started as a support group for LGBTQ youth in Napa in early spring 2010, grew into a comprehensive initiative serving thousands of people of all ages and growing LGBTQ youth leadership across the region. As both a hub of LGBTQ information and a thriving center of the community, the project increases awareness and visibility.
LGBTQ Connection envisions communities that are renowned for being LGBTQ-friendly and welcoming—ones that are healthy, safe, and fully inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and “questioning” people and that have visible, diverse and vibrant LGBTQ communities.
LGBTQ Connection exists to foster a healthy, diverse and inclusive community, driven by emerging leaders in the rural and suburban north SF Bay Area.
