Queer Leadership Retreat is an annual weekend retreat hosted by the UC Davis Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Intersex Asexual Resource Center. The purpose of the retreat is to foster opportunities for identity development and community building for UC Davis scholars, particularly first year and first year transfers. We aim to center and support queer and trans people of color in our work.
Queer Leadership Retreat 2020 will center and explore the theme of INNER POWER. During our retreat, we hope to harness and channel the individual power that lives within us and heighten the collective power of our LGBTQIA+ community. Utilizing our own inner wisdom and power challenges those who maintain hierarchical, unjust structures that aim to hold us down and leaves many feeling powerless. By deeply understanding what makes us feel powerful, we are able to summon our inner power, connect to our personal stories, and be prepared to enact change at all levels.
