Speakers

"LISTENERS"

Attending SYT! is important as well, because we want the audience to feel connected to the "Speakers", get educated, and/or be inspired to take action.  A few considerations for "Listeners":
-We'll stick with local & venue guidelines re: COVID protocols

-We'll live stream the event if you can't attend in person (w/ access to it on youtube.com going forward)

-We ask that Listeners keep an open mind & that one's "truth" may be different than your own

-SYT! can bring up strong emotions, so we'll have resources for support (online & at the venue) if needed
