Each of JQ’s speakers is a role model who draws upon their personal experiences and life stories to show how LGBTQ+ and Jewish identities can be integrated. Their messages encourage their audiences to expand the number of safe spaces for LGBTQ+ Jews in their organization and in the community-at-large

The impact of the JQ speakers’ stories:

The personal stories shared by the trainer during the training touched our volunteers and moved many to become more embracing of the LGBTQ community.

Thank you for teaching us that everyone is equal and to stand up for what we believe in. I especially liked that you shared with us your stories of coming out to teach us that sometimes we will go through difficult situations in life but that doesn't mean that we should give up or stop trying.
