Topic: Education & Labor
Presenter: Shawn Boyne

Ames Pridefest 2020 is ready to #StayInBeOut!

The Pridefest 2020 Storytelling Project, in partnership with Ames Public Library, will create opportunities for local people to tell their stories during our Pridefest celebration. Stories will be shared in multiple ways including in a scheduled monthly event, via social media posts and through other programming formats as storytellers would like. 

This month, Attorney Shawn Boyne recounts a childhood of standing up for what's right into standing up for women's and gender rights throughout law school, culminating in a civil protest against a sitting supreme court judge, which might have cost her her California license.
