Jackson, Mississippi LGBTQ Leadership Summit

Jackson, Mississippi LGBTQ Leadership Summit
Jackson, Mississippi

Join LGBTQ Victory Institute and Mississippi Votes for a day-long, interactive leadership development training for LGBTQ leaders, advocates, and activists in Mississippi. Jackson LGBTQ Leadership Summit trainees will participate in collaborative workshops and discussions on how to run for office or enter public service as an openly LGBTQ individual as well as develop an effective personal narrative. Trainees will also spend the day networking with LGBTQ leaders from around Mississippi.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 and the recent spread of the Omicron strain, we are pushing the date back from February 12, 2022 to February 26, 2022. We look forward to seeing you on the 26th! 

Space is limited and reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The training will be capped at 20 participants for COVID safety. The deadline for registration is February 25, 2022.
