Debra Chasnoff at Northwest LGBTA Youth Conference for HopeThursday 21, April 2011
By Debra Chasnoff, President/Senior Producer | Events
GroundSpark is proud to announce our Founding Director Debra Chasnoff will be the keynote speaker at the 2nd Northwest LGBTA Youth Conference for Hope. There will also be a screening of our film, It’s STILL Elementary. This conference was inspired by the 2009 LGBTQIA Youth Conference for Hope, hosted by the Odyssey Youth Center in Spokane, Washington. Lion’s Pride was challenged by the original creators of the conference to host the next conference in Idaho in the summer of 2011. This year’s conference will focus on helping families with youth heal from the complications that the coming out of a loved one can bring upon a family. Together with our partners and sponsors we will do this through the education, discussion, and workshops that will give families more tools to encourage healing. If you have youth ages 25 and under and your family has a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender family member, this is the conference for you. Bring your questions, your family, and expect to meet other families in the same situation that your family is in.
