“Romeo Jackson's presentation on Intersectional Coalition Building offered excellent perspectives and many creative ideas on how marginalized communities can work together to advance their agendas. Mx. Jackson draws upon their own experiences and identities to provide concrete examples and intersperses their own in depth research throughout their presentation. A powerful speaker who can engage audiences of all ages, Romeo Jackson is in the vanguard of Black and LGBTQ+ researchers and leaders for creating positive social change.”

“Thank you again for your impactful lecture at Indiana University. You were engaging and thoughtful in crafting this lecture for our campus. Several faculty members approached me after the event very excited about the knowledge they gained and with new ideas for creating and fostering supportive and inclusive environments and experiences within their classrooms and throughout campus. You have sparked change at IU.”

"Working with Romeo was fantastic. They presented a session called Petty Praxis that emphasized active listening and connecting with our authentic selves. They set ground rules and gave space for everyone to be heard. Later that evening, Romeo lead a discussion around coalition building that emphasized intersectionality through a lens of recent popular culture, while also giving a nod to native land and enslaved peoples. They truly helped the audience to understand a coalition building model that focused on similarities and will be helpful on our campus. I highly recommend bringing Romeo Jackson to come speak to your school, business, or organization."
