Event description

Description

You Are Welcome Here (YAWH) is a tri-institutional conference coordinated and implemented by a team of organizers on the Auraria campus, with oversight from the Women & Gender Center at the University of Colorado Denver and the LGBTQ Student Resource Center at Auraria. YAWH is centered on being interfaith and LGBTQIA+ inclusive and affirming. The organizers of this event are committed to embracing diversity, amplifying the voices of folks who belong to historically underrepresented groups, and making the event accessible for participants. We are committed to standing against racism, sexism, homophobia, misogyny, ableism, and other forms of prejudice. It is our hope to provide a space for attendees – devout and skeptic alike – to listen, ask questions, and share their personal journey with others. By providing a space to talk about a variety of realities including racism, coming out, mental health, and more, we hope that attendees will be heard, seen, and feel truly welcome. This year we will be hosting a variety of speakers from different faiths and spiritualties, the majority of whom identify within the LGBTQIA+ community. Our speakers and collaborators will share with the community through keynote presentations, workshop sessions, and panel discussions.

Check out our website to see our keynote speakers and schedule for the conference!


Please note: We are committed to making this event accessible to all. If you need accommodations in order to participate fully in this event, please email Jacob McWilliams at jacob.mcwilliams@ucdenver.edu, or call (303) 315-7262.
