Ashby Dialogues and Symposium

Presented by LEARN, and sponsored by the UNCG University Libraries:

HB2: Bad Policy, Fack News & Real Impact

LEARN (LGBTQ+ Education and Resource Network) is hosting an Ashby Dialogue to encourage student-driven discourse with faculty and staff in a university-wide forum about HB2, both as a policy and a media phenomenon, and how this affects external and internal perceptions of LGBTQ+ communities.  The conversation takes place over two dialogues and a symposium. The first dialogue will be held on February 15, from 4-6pm in Mary Foust Residence Hall. We will discuss Bad Policy: How and why did it happen?
