This year, HRC Foundation’s Youth Well-Being Project named their first-ever Youth Ambassadors.
The dynamic young people are Jazz Jennings, Christian Ross, Jeydon Loredo, Joey Kemmerling, Giovanni Blair McKenzie, Laila Al-Shamma, Val Weisler, Joey Kemmerling, Winter Page, Constance McMillen, Thomas Davis and Tamara Williams.
These amazing teens and young adults were invited to participate in the program because of their courage in sharing their own stories, and their demonstrated commitment to speaking out about issues facing all LGBTQ youth.
As Youth Ambassadors, they will represent the HRC Foundation and help to raise awareness about its youth-focused programs to a wider audience, and add their voices and experiences to many of the Foundation's programs.
