Together We RISE Episode 3: Lori Ampey

As a life-long advocate for youth in our community, Lori Ampey, Director of Tanager Place LGBTQ+ Center and Director of Programming & Outreach at Boys & Girls Club, shares her story of resilience through finding a sense of meaning and purpose through contributing to the lives of others. In addition to being seen, accepted, and honored for who you are, finding a sense of mattering in this world creates a reason to keep going each and every day.
