This forum will feature LGBTQ community leaders and will explore different ways members of the LGBTQ+ community can get involved and take action to advance the interests of our community. Panelists will talk about running for office as openly gay people, leading by your values, getting involved in campaigns, organizing, volunteering, getting involved in causes and starting non-profits and creating spaces for community growth. This is an LGBTQ+ focused forum, but open to all and should be highly informative to all.
