Brian Edwards, M.S.Ed., coordinator of the LGBTQ Center at Montclair State University

Phillip N. Siculietano, M.A., Affirmative Action Officer, Nutley School District

Kerri McCaffrey, award-winning poet and transgender fifth grade teacher in NJ schools

Moderator: Cheryl Restaino, educator and leader of PFLAG North Jersey
