LGBTQ Digital Learning Series

Every year, Garden State Equality's program team travels the state to provide trainings on LGBTQ issues for schools, hospitals, and older adult care facilities so we can build true, lived equality in our communities. Even with the current crisis, our work hasn't slowed down.

Over the next several weeks, we're bringing our programs and trainings online with our LGBTQ Digital Learning Series, where you'll hear from our team and experts in the field about our community programs for safe schools, affirming healthcare, and protecting older adults.

Every Thursday at 1:30 pm, we will be broadcasting live on our Facebook and Zoom. See below for our full schedule of online events and be sure to RSVP!
