Desciption: The need to understand our history is ever more prudent as new leaders emerge to fight for equity that seems all too often ignored. JUFA speaker Series “Queeroes” explores the lives of local LGBTQIA advocates that have paved the way for equality and social justice throughout the years. These voices represent movements that have been forgotten and those that still surge on. This is an excellent opportunity to learn best practices from our senior advocates and budding leaders.
