Description: Join the LGBTQ+ Group in welcoming transgender advocate Gerri Cannon.

For over 15 years, Gerri has been discussing transgender topics for Speak Out Boston, PFLAG NH, and with the New Hampshire State Legislature. Gerri lives in Somersworth, NH and was elected to the City School Board in 2017. Last year, she ran and won a seat as an NH State Representative in District 18 of Strafford County (Somersworth and Rollinsford).

She was a member of the Freedom NH Steering Committee and a spokesperson for the transgender equality legislation that was passed last year. Gerri worked for the combined companies of Digital, Compaq, and Hewlett Packard for over 30 years in a wide variety of engineering and marketing roles. She ran her own carpentry business in Merrimack, NH and later she drove tractor trailers cross-country.

Gerri is a member of the New Hampshire Conference of UCC Open and Affirming Concerns Committee. She has been a member of the United Church of Christ for the past 12 years. We welcome all to join us for conversation and pizza with Gerri. Please register http://www.eventkeeper.com/code/ekform.cfm?curOrg=LAWRENCE&curID=380124
