      How to Advocate for your LGBTQ Child at School - Presented by Allison Scott of Campaign for Southern Equality

      PFLAG Asheville is excited to present our first Guest Speaker Event at the 2/13/19 General Meeting! Allison is a proud Asheville native who currently serves as Director of Policy and Programs at Campaign for Southern Equality. She is passionate about community outreach, politics, activism, cares deeply about Asheville and its citizenry, and works daily at the local level to ensure that Asheville is a welcoming community for its minorities and traditionally marginalized populations. Allison identifies as a trans woman and uses She and Her pronouns. As part of her advocacy work she has developed and led numerous trainings for local organizations including medical practices, schools, churches, and businesses, established a name-change initiative for trans people, conducted support groups, participated in panel discussions, interviews, and coordinated with local school systems, news agencies, and politicians regarding equality for LGBTQ people. Allison also serves as Chair of CPAC, the Asheville Citizen’s Police Advisory Council, for approximately two years working to help resolve issues that arise between the community and local law enforcement.
