Emma Willard School's Speaker Series Hosts Sarah McBride

Last Wednesday, April 17 our students attended our fourth and final event of the Speaker Series for the school year. Emma Willard School hosted Sarah McBride, an author, activist, and the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign.
Ms. McBride’s discussed her book, Tomorrow Will be Different: Love, Loss and The Fight for Trans Equality, a memoir about her experience as a transgender woman and her role in fighting for equality in her home state of Delaware and nationally.
Ms. McBride also answered questions from students in an evening discussion and met with members of our student PRIDE club. Students were encouraged to listen with curiosity and ask questions.
Each year we bring a variety of speakers to campus around a larger theme, this year that theme was about the raising of one’s voice. Students listened attentively, asked thoughtful questions and appreciated being able to learn from speakers, first-hand, about their experiences.
