Invite: Join Secretary Sally Jewel and Director Jon Jarvis in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, June 10th for the LGBT Theme Study Panel Discussion

1

Dear Friend:

Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis invite you to a panel discussion with some of the nation’s most respected researchers and preservationists to explore ways to celebrate and interpret Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender history within the larger fabric of American history.

Last week, Secretary Jewell announced a new theme study, as part of the National Park Service Heritage Initiative to identify places and events associated with the story of LGBT Americans for inclusion in the parks and programs of the agency. The theme study is part of a broader initiative under the Obama Administration to ensure that the National Park Service reflects and tells a more complete story of the people and events responsible for building this nation.

The public is invited to take part in this discussion to learn more about the initiative and to share comments on its initial phases. If you are interested in submitting a question, please submit it via the RSVP link below.
