  • Dinner will feature keynote speaker Sarah McBride. Sarah is a progressive activist, the National Press Secretary at the Human Rights Campaign, and author of Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality. She made national headlines in 2011 when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University, and in 2016, she became the first openly transgender person to address a major party convention.
