COME TOGETHER KENTUCKY 2012

COME TOGETHER KENTUCKY 2012

The 16th Statewide Conference on LGBT equality and social justice was held in Louisville, KY on March 30- April 1, 2012! An exciting opportunity for students across the Commonwealth to share ideas, resources, and to learn from one another! Sponsored by JustFund Kentucky, the Statewide Fairness Coalition, Louisville Youth Group, and the University of Louisville Office for LGBT Services.

Come Together Kentucky (CTK) is a conference for college students, high school students, and community members who want to learn more about LGBT identity, social justice, overcoming bullying, and changing the world around them. The weekend-long program will instruct, encourage and invite you to reach for and achieve your goals and aspirations as an activist in the LGBT political, social, and educational movement in Kentucky.
