Queer Youth Leadership Day at the Statehouse
04/09/2014 – 6:23 PM | No Comment

 

Queer Youth Leadership Day will take place at the State House in Montpelier from 8:00 am-3:00 pm on Wednesday, April 30th. Leadership Day is a chance for queer and allied youth to learn how to talk to their Representatives, meet with Governor Shumlin, be introduced on the House Floor, talk about issues relevant to our community, hear from queer-identified Legislators, and have their voices heard by the Human Rights Commission.

In past years, this event has been called LGBTQ Visibility Day. This year we are putting the focus on queer and questioning youth. Join us for this amazing event and let’s queer up the statehouse!

QSA Advisors are welcome and encouraged to attend this event with their QSAs. The dress code is ‘Dress to Impress,” whatever that means to you! Please note that Outright will not be providing food or transportation to this event. The schedule for Queer Youth Leadership Day is as follows:

  • 8:00AM – 9:00AM       Meet & greet with Legislators.

  • 9:00AM – 9:30AM        Welcome to Queer Youth Leadership Day & “How to Talk to Your Legislator” presentation.

  • 9:30AM – 10:00AM     Vermont Movie: Part 4 – the history of marriage equality in Vermont.

  • 10:10AM – 10:45AM   Meet with Governor Shumlin in the Ceremonial Office

  • 10:45AM – 11:45AM    Panel and Q&A with queer-identified Legislators.

  • 11:45AM  - 12:45PM    Lunch with Legislators in the Statehouse cafeteria

  • 1:00PM – 2:00PM         Introduction on the Floor of the House of Representatives and reading of the Outright VT 25th Anniversary Celebratory Resolution.

  • 2:00PM-3:00PM           Session with Tracy Tsugawa, Civil Rights Investigator for the Human Rights Commission, in which youth speak about bullying, harrassment, and the climate within their schools.
