2019 E3 LGBTQA Youth Summit Sponsorships

In April 2019, Erie will host the region’s first summit focused solely on empowering LGBTQA youth through engagement and education. The summit is organized by local advocates and is open to all LGBTQA youth, their families, and those who work with LGBTQA youth. Overall, the summit is designed to connect and support those youth ages 12-21 so that we can create a more aware, safe, and empowered community.

The opening event will take place on Friday, April 12, 2019, which is also the National Day of Silence for an evening of connection through games, food, and a live performance. Saturday will include a keynote address, breakout sessions with local, regional, and national presenters, and networking sessions.

We are asking for sponsorships from local organizations and business to help ensure the success of this event. In order to pay for the venue, meals, keynote speakers, and travel costs for youth who need assistance in attending, we are looking to raise $10,000.00.
