Toward Racial Justice explores race and the LGBTQ community. Thursday May 13 at 7pm.

About this Event

42% of LGBTQ adults in the United States identify as people of color and as the national discussion around racial equality grows, many individuals are facing challenging conversations with people who are uninformed about race, identity or the intersection of both.

During this discussion, we’ll examine some of the needs and challenges faced by LGBTQ communities of color such as discrimination in the workforce, within the LGBTQ community itself and address some of the unique obstacles LGBTQ youth of color are dealing with live on WITF’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.


Panelists include:

Amanda Carter – Site Director, GLO Harrisburg, LGBT Center of Central PA, View her bio

Our objective is to help serve as a catalyst for change by bringing people together to discuss possible solutions and inspire collective action.
