Grassroots Lesbian & Queer Organizers Tell All! (LA)

  • Plummer Park Community Center (map)


Part of the month-long "Lesbians To Watch Out For: '90s Queer LA Activism" Exhibit, this panel of Lesbian and Queer organizers from L.A. and NYC, and WeHo street activist & community groups, will bring their stories and insights to talk about what worked, what didn't, and what we can learn from 90's organizing that can help us in the current Resistance.

Hear what advice & strategies these organizers would pass on to young queer activists now, and what they're learning from today's movers and shakers!

Anne-christine d'Adesky (co-founder Lesbian Avengers)
Liz Friedman (Queer Nation)
