The 2020 E3 LGBTQ Youth Summit was held virtually November 21-22 2020, but that didn't stop the excitement and engagement for everyone that participated.
The E3 Youth LGBTQA Summit took place on April 12-13, 2019 at Strong Vincent Middle School. The event was possible because of the two prime sponsors Community Care Behavioral Health and Greater Erie Alliance for Equality, as well as several other local donors (Systems of Care, Erie Education Association, Giant Eagle, and State Farm). The focus of the Summit was to strengthen the supports for LGBTQA Youth in the community through engagement and education. The event kicked off with a free concert on Friday evening with opening act DreamStates, a duo based in Akron, Ohio taking the stage before the headliner, award-winning Ryan Casatta, a California-based musician.
