Last Wednesday Sarah McBride closed out our Cab Calloway School Fund’s Art of Conversation Speaker Series. The Cab Calloway School Fund would like to thank all the patrons and supporters of the Speaker Series. The first series was a great success bringing nationally acclaimed speakers to Delaware for informative, insightful and fun interviews.
The speaker series is designed to help the School Fund continue its efforts for the endowment to support the various arts in the Cab Calloway School community.
Sarah Mcbride is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign. In 2012, Sarah made national headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Sarah serves on the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware and helped lead the successful effort to add gender identity and expression to Delaware’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws. In 2008, Sarah worked for Governor Jack Markell (D-DE) and, in 2010, for former Attorney General Beau Biden (D-DE). Prior to coming to HRC, Sarah worked on LGBTQ equality at the Center for American Progress and interned at the White House, the first out trans woman to do so. Last year, Sarah made history when she became the first openly transgender person to address a major political party’s convention when she spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Sarah is a Cab Calloway School of the Arts Alumni (2009) and is launching her new book which is available now.
