What is Leadership Day?
Leadership Day is an annual event which gives fellow LGBTQ Vermonters an opportunity to connect with LGBTQ organizations, and to connect with legislators about important issues facing our community today!
We are grateful to our legislative leaders and supporters who made history bringing full marriage equality to Vermont through the legislative process. There is still work to be done and issues that legislators must hear about directly from their constituents.
We need your participation to ensure that our presence and the issues that are important to us are VISIBLE!
