  • Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (map)

The Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is honored to present this important discussion of using the power of the polls to empower the LGBTQIA community.
Join Monika Nemeth, the first known transgender person to ever be elected to public office in Washington, DC, & Dean Dafis, Maplewood, NJ’s first openly gay elected official, in intimate conversation with BRCSJ Chief Activist Robt Seda-Schreiber.
Two extraordinary individuals who will enlighten & inspire us all by sharing stories from the campaign trail, what moved them to make a difference both locally & nationally, & how we can all follow suit to best represent all our beautifully diverse communities.
