Central Washington University faculty, staff and students, along with Ellensburg community members, are invited to participate in a LGBTQ2IA+ Teach-In from 4-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, outside of the CWU Brooks Library.

Several speakers will touch on topics in connection to the recent incidents of anti-LGBTQ2IA+ hate and discrimination on campus, as well as larger discussions about their impact. The goal is to further conversations about these issues and provide space for members of the CWU campus and the greater community to interact.

Warm drinks will be available, as well as space for sidewalk chalk art, poster making and tabling from groups on campus. The event also will be streamed live for those who cannot attend. 

This event is sponsored by the Gender and Sexuality Center; the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program; the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity; and the CWU Brooks Library.
