Greater Erie Alliance for Equality (GEAE) End of Year Celebration
Greater Erie Alliance for Equality (GEAE) held their annual end-of-year celebration on Monday December 11, 2017 at the Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center. Will Koehler, Ph.D. thanked supporters, board members, advisory council members, and sponsors for this past year. He also spoke of their accomplishments including Progress Toward Equality, an awareness event on the courthouse steps, the development of a GSA for area high school and college-aged students, improvements in their communication, an educational symposium to talk about the needs of the LGBT older population, and many outreach events. All of these action steps are to help increase Erie's Municipal Equality Index by providing more education and services for the LGBTQ community. Dr. Koehler also welcomed two new officers to the board: Leah Manino as President and Dale Allgeier as Vice President.
