Bridge Builders: An Inspiring Conversation with Samantha Allen

Clinton Presidential Center | Little Rock, Arkansas

Join us on Sunday, June 2, for Bridge Builders: An Inspiring Conversation with Samantha Allen, author of Real Queer America: LGBT Stories from Red States. In her new book, trans journalist Samantha Allen takes us along on a road trip through red states, inviting readers to join in a celebration of queer life and activism in places where the choice to live as you are is a part of the daily fight. Real Queer America is a story of hope, joy, friendship, and the exhilarating possibility of change for the better. .

Bridge Builders is sponsored by Coulson Oil.

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 presented by the Clinton Presidential Center 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.
