ACPA & LGBT Leaders Out & About Justice in New York 

This video captures Dr. Cindi Love, ACPA's Executive Director at the 2nd Annual LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education Conference in New York City June 2016. The Institute was co-hosted by Teacher's College at Columbia University and the Manhattan School of Music. The Presidents, Chancellors and aspiring leaders marched in New York's Pride Parade carrying signs that gave their titles at their institutions, logos and statements "I am OUT." The video also introduces the ACPA investment portfolio manager from Morgan Stanley and the Parity and Diversity and Inclusion portfolios in which ACPA has invested its reserve funds. The segment also notes President Barack Obama's designation of the Stonewall Inn as a national monument and pays tribue to the Latinx community who are suffering such devastating impact from the Orlando massacre.  #NYCPride

Our goal is that at least 500 donors across the lifespan of the campaign will donate a total of $30,000. The campaign will conclude at the 2017 ACPA Convention in Columbus, Ohio.
