The 2014 Rural Pride Summit at Wayne State College

On September 19, 2014, Wayne State College (WSC) was the proud host of a LGBT #RuralPride Summit. 
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights, in collaboration with the National Center for Lesbian Rights and The True Colors Fund, engaged with WSC to host the third stop in the LGBT Rural Summit Series. The summit offered rural Nebraskans a unique opportunity for USDA and other federal agencies to share information relating to policies, programs, and services that exist to protect, promote and strengthen LGBT rural communities. Many topics were discussed during the summit, including legal issues and nondiscrimination in rural LGBT communities; LGBT youth in rural America; LGBT health disparities; and community partnerships/cross movements advocacy. 
The USDA and community partners had informational tables set up in the lobby throughout the summit on topics relevant to LGBT rural communities. 
Over 100 people attended the Nebraska summit allowing collaboration and networking across the state.
