Triangle Speakers LGBTQ+ Panel
June 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL) and The Diversity Center of Santa Cruz County have partnered to bring a panel presentation from LGBTQ+ Triangle Speakers to our Library Community. The panel discussion will be held via Zoom at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 27, 2020. The event is free, but registration is required. To register, visit bit.ly/SCPL-Triangle
In this program you will hear speakers tell their life stories, discuss what it means to be part of this community, and answer audience questions. Triangle Speakers work to eliminate fear, prejudice, and hatred towards LGBTQ+ people so that a healthy environment exists where all members of our community can thrive and live full and healthy lives. According to Library Director Susan Nemitz, “The Library is a safe and trusted space to have discussions that navigate culture, identity, and community. We overcome fear and hate with understanding and love…We are so thankful that these folks are brave enough to share their life stories to help us build these bridges.”
Hundreds of speakers have shared their incredible human stories of triumph and hope to thousands of people along the Central Coast for over 22 years. This educational speakers’ bureau is one of the most important ways the Diversity Center has been breaking down barriers throughout Santa Cruz County for decades.
