Two Spirit Justice Summit
At this roundtable summit, Two Spirit Leaders from around the Northwest will come together with allies to listen, learn, and articulate priorities for the growing movement for Two Spirit and LGBT Justice in Indian Country. The summit runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and includes lunch.
Role for Allies: We want to create a space where Two Spirit and LGBT Tribal People’s voices are lifted and given priority in a conversation to set priorities for needs and challenges. If you are an ally to Indian Country and LGBT rights and issues, you are most welcome to attend, listen, volunteer, and offer ideas. We need everyone!

From 5-8 p.m. summit participants along with allies from Lewis & Clark and the wider community, will celebrate the publication of the Tribal Equity Toolkit 2.0. This celebration includes dinner, a sparkling apple cider toast, and is open to the public with a suggested donation.
