Get Beer. Diversity. to the Denver CBCs

Raised by 43 people in 1 month
I started Beer. Diversity. in May 2018, and since then I've have the honour of speaking at various Ontario breweries, schools and working with some fantastic people in Canada and the U.S. to further the conversation about diversity.  I've received the invite of my career - attending the Craft Brewers Conference in Denver (April 8-11, 2019), as the sole Canadian on a panel led by the Brewers Association's Diversity Ambassador, Dr J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham.  The great news is that I'll be learning from some of the best in the industry, while the bad news is that my travel and accommodations aren't covered. And that's where YOU come in.  Help me get out there and chat with and learn from some of North America's best beer industry folks about diversity and inclusion.  The funds will be used to purchase a plane ticket and hotel/Air BnB accommodation. Any excess funds raised will be donated to a charity that assists LGBTQ+ youth and to the Cancer Centre at Grand River Hospital in KW. As a thank you to those who donate, I'll be offering rewards at these amounts:  $100-150: 15 minute talk (within GTA, Guelph/KW) about beer & diversity) $150 - 250: 20 minute talk (within GTA, Guelph/KW) about beer & diversity) $250-350: 30 minute talk (within GTA, Guelph/KW) about beer & diversity) Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanks for the support throughout 2018! https://www.craftbrewersconference.com/speakers#7526?speaker-name=ren-navarro
