Event description

Description

One Human Family QCA has teamed up with some of the best voices in our area to present an action-oriented day of workshops on solutions in the areas of 1) race-based hate, 2) faith-based hate, 3) LGBTQ hate, and 4) immigration hate. Attendees choose 3 of the 4 sessions. Keynote speaker is Sen. Zach Wahls.

Wahls first gained national attention when his testimony before the Iowa House Judiciary Committee about growing up with gay parents went viral and became YouTube’s most-watched political video of 2011. He is an advocate for LGBTQ rights and co-founder and executive director of Scouts for Equality, the national organization which led the campaign to successfully end the Boy Scouts of America’s decades-old ban on gay people. He has spoken at 250+ events all over Iowa and across America, including a primetime speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention supporting President Obama.

Wahls is also the author of the bestselling book My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family. Recently, he and his sister created The Woman Cards, a deck of playing cards featuring 15 original, hand-drawn portraits of American women who changed the world.
