|Description:||Triangle Speakers is an educational speakers bureau for Santa Cruz County that provides 100+ panels to middle school, high school and college classrooms, organizations and local businesses each year. Our speakers, volunteers, and staff are concerned individuals who work to eliminate homophobia - the fear, prejudice, hatred, and discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people - so that a healthy environment exists for all members of our community.
ELIGIBILITY: Our training is open to those who share an interest - we welcome allies, family members, parents and partners of LGBTIQ+ community members too.
FEES: For our speaking engagements our fees are as follows:
$50 per presentation for community organizations.
$25 per presentation for educational institutions who are not a public K-12 school.
$0 (free) per presentation for public K-12 schools.
We understand this cost may be prohibitive for some potential Triangle Speakers hosts, so The Diversity Center will also be making available a limited number of fee waivers for hosts who would like to have panels, but are unable to pay a fee. Anyone with an interest in a fee waiver please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
