EQTX Fireside Chat: So you want to be an ally?

  • 701 Brazos Street 16th Floor Austin, TX 78701 (map)

Join Equality Texas at Capital Factory for the first in our series of fireside chats. These quarterly events are meant to educate and empower the LGBTQ community and allies alike to help us achieve our mission:

To secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration.

For our first installment - So you want to be an ally? - we'll be speaking with members of the LGBT community about their opinions, experiences, and thoughts on allyship. Our panel will discuss, and attendees will be invited to participate, in a conversation that covers questions and topics including:

- What is an ally?

- Why are allies necessary?

- The value of allyship

- The do's and don'ts

- How to handle missteps

Panel: Jeannine Armbruster, Andrew Siemer, Seth List, David Reyes
