South Jersey LGBTQIA+ Summit: United on a Shared Journey

January 28 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

This summit will bring together South Jersey’s LGBTQIA+ community to celebrate this year’s theme, “United on a Shared Journey,” echoing the critical need to forge a path forward, determine our region’s needs, and come together as a community. We are united by our shared experiences with adversity, celebrations of pride, love, and self, and our commitment to creating a better and safer world for those who come after us. Together, so much more is possible.

We are honored to be hosted by Stockton University’s Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program, and we thank our sponsors, the Atlantic County Council of Education Associations, LGBTQ+ Youth Safe Space, and
Garden State Equality.
