Diversity Seminars

This program was developed originally for peer veterans organizations to assist their staff when identifying with LGBT veterans. The program was well received by outside organizations. And our thanks to the University of Colorado for their assistance in helping us put it together.

As a community outreach, we will now be offering the program to the general public who are interest in finding out more about the LGBT community and to have a better understanding of the LGBTQ population.
