work closely with the Gender task force I will include a representative from the LBGTQ and
Transgender Community. And will work to amend the bylaws to include a diversity of gender and of
programs to make it balanced and equitable.

attendance to the government Meetings, to hold them accountable and ensure forward movement in
their roles. If you cannot commit, you should not run!
