Leadership Development Opportunities | John Hellman | Wednesday May 20, 2009 1:24
This past weekend the Audre Lorde Project, another amazing queer of color organizing in NYC, hosted their annual LGBTSTGNC People of Color Leadership Retreat at Rutgers University in New Jersey, and Little John and I were able to represent FIERCE. Representatives from SISTAH (Sisters in Search of Alliance, and Harmony), the Northeast Two-Spirit Society, ICE (Inner Child Experience), PRIDE (Puerto Rican Initiative to Develop Empowerment), SALGA, (South Asian Lesbian and Gay Association, United Bristas of Unity, and GAPIMNY (Gay Asian Pacific Islander Men of New York) also attended, and we had such a great, productive retreat!
