ANNOUNCEMENT (original post April 2019)
I am going on tour!
As you might know, I visit schools and other organizations to talk about diversity and inclusion. To date, these events have all been through word-of-mouth or by request. However, starting in the fall of 2019, I will be going on tour, aiming to hit schools that otherwise might not have the resources or exposure for a visit.
The tour cities are still up in the air & subject to change but here is a sample of some we hope to hit: Fort Worth/Plano/Arlington, San Antonio, Austin, Phoenix/Mesa/Tempe, Jacksonville, San Jose/Fremont, Bakersfield, Boise, Aurora/Denver, Nashville, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Wichita, Anaheim, Anchorage, Pittsburgh, Spokane, Las Vegas, Lexington, Corpus Christi.
SO!! If you want me to speak at your school/organization, whether you think your organization can fund it or not – let’s make it happen! Get in touch with your administration, with your LGBTQ student group, with someone who has scheduling power at your organization, and shoot me a request at email@example.com.
I will deliver (hopefully) 40+ talks from August 2019 through October 2019 before I start my job in Seattle.
We are hoping to find a paying “sponsor” school or organization in each city/area and thereby defray costs for other schools in the area who may not have the means. Either way, we will find a way to fund the tour.
If you know of any schools that might be willing to be a “sponsor” please connect me!
We need to finalize the itinerary by June and scheduling 40+ visits is a handful, so contact us as soon as you can.
Again, feel free to share the flier and direct any prospective schools or organizations to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
