This NASPA LGBTQA leadership conference, to be held Thursday, April 23-Saturday, April 25 at the University of Montana, invites students to educate and learn about intersecting identities while promoting social justice. The conference aims to create a respectful, open, and widely accessible environment in which participants will be challenged to apply the things they learn into their lives after they leave the conference, with a goal to foster an understanding of difference that emphasizes discussion and social interaction, remembering that we are all at varying levels of knowledge and experience, and that those differences enhance our communities.
