When Kurt Kelly first took ownership of The Stonewall Inn, he was aware of its incredible legacy, but had no idea it would one day become the first National Monument dedicated to LGBTQ history. Join us on June 29 for a Pride Month Bridge Builders conversation with Mr. Kelly, moderated by Kendra Johnson, a Little Rock native and Presidential Leadership Scholar who leads Equality North Carolina, and featuring remarks from Chelsea Clinton.

About Bridge Builders

President Clinton said, “In the end, all that matters is the builders. And after the builders are forgotten, all that remains are the ripples of what they’ve built.” Bridge Builders will present the stories of distinguished change makers, thought leaders, and influencers. This programming series is presented by the Clinton Foundation and sponsored by Coulson Oil.

Each conversation will allow our compelling speakers to share their insightful perspectives; name pivotal moments that inspired them  and why; and offer first-hand accounts of the moments that shaped their lives and, in many cases, the course of history. The conclusion of each conversation will include a call to action, a charge to each person in attendance to learn more or do something that adds to the bridge that, together, we are building to the future.
