About Our Keynote Speaker

GABBY RIVERA is an outgoing, outspoken creator invested in fostering better dialogue, inspiring radical creativity, and improving our most vulnerable communities. The author of Juliet Takes a Breath, she’s also the writer of the new Marvel series America—featuring the first queer, Latinx teen-girl superhero, ever—that’s catching headlines from The New York Times, CNN, Vogue, and beyond.

“Marvel’s America is the superhero people need right now.” — Entertainment Weekly

Gabby Rivera is a young, charming speaker dedicated to empowering women and improving our marginalized communities. She’s currently making major waves for her new Marvel series starring America Chavez: a queer, Latinx superhero who’s been written and designed, crucially, by a queer Latinx. And while the series is “definitely going to tackle America’s ancestry and ethnicity,” Rivera tells The Washington Post, it’s also a comic book aimed at wide appeal: committed to snappy one-liners, blowing stuff up, and beating up the bad guys, naturally.

American Indian/Alaska Native Community Gatherings

Samish Indian Nation and Skagit Valley College  host community gatherings on the  Mount Vernon Campus. From Coast Salish Weaving to Storytelling, these educational experiences foster the preservation of Samish culture and traditions. Below are past community gatherings.

Queer I Am

This Summit is a collaborative project of regional colleges, community organizations, educators, students and organizers. We are proud to invite you to join us in a summit by the people for the people!

Values central to the summit:
• Building community through liberation and celebration of queer culture.
• Providing spaces for safety, healing and growth.
• Fostering accessibility for diverse needs and levels of experience.
• Centering voices and experiences of Queer and Trans People of Color.
