Equality Ohio’s ever popular CAUSE Conference returns to downtown Columbus this weekend for two days of rallies and workshops in an effort to bring together and nurture young LGBT activists from all over Ohio.

Here’s a brief description of CAUSE (College And University Students for Equality) according to the EO Web site:

The CAUSE conference is a summit for LGBT and allied leaders in the college and university community working for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality.  Come to Columbus to meet young leaders like yourself from all over Ohio!

This unique, two day summit sets out to inspire, empower, and support students and young leaders ages 18-24 working hard for equality in their communities.  If you are not between ages 18-24, but know someone who is, please pass along the message!

CAUSE takes place April 2-3 and is hosted by Columbus College of Art & Design at Columbus State Community College in The Center for Workforce Development – Ballroom (WD 435), 315 Cleveland Ave., Columbus.
