QTPOC

Out Boulder County is searching for a trainer with experience in working with QTPOC folks!

Out Boulder County is searching for a nationally recognized trainer with multiple years of experience in advocacy for queer and trans people of color to lead a Queer and Transgender People of Color (QTPOC) Leadership Summit to be held in April or May 2018 in Boulder County, Colorado.

The Leadership Academy will address the needs, experiences, and narratives of queer and transgender people of color while working to develop an action plan for greater QTPOC representation in Out Boulder County's vision and future programming, as well as in the Boulder/Longmont community-atlarge.

With 15 community members participating the goals of The QTPOC Leadership Academy are to:

-Collect, evaluate, and share lived experiences from participants for the purpose of learning what matters most to queer and trans people of color, what actions might facilitate individual and community healing, and what steps can be taken to motivate the community to take action,

- Center storytelling as a form of knowledge and social change,

- Develop community and encourage greater civic engagement,

- Diversify Out Boulder County's voice with respect to racial and ethnic identities,

- Effect organizational change through greater visibility, acceptance, and inclusion of queer and trans people of color in program design/delivery, leadership, and planning for Out Boulder County.

The QTPOC Leadership Academy will provide a platform for queer and trans people of color to discuss issues affecting their physical, social, emotional, and economic well-being and formulate a plan to elevate awareness of these issues. Improving visibility of QTPOC issues will promote understanding, acceptance, and ultimately inclusion, which means a better quality of life for this marginalized population.

For additional information please email qtpoc@outboulder.org. Inquiries and letters of interest are due by March 1, 2018.

This program is funded by The Colorado Health Foundation. Travel and accomdations included.
