The Alphabet Social

The Alphabet Social

Beginning in 2021, the AFS Equal Opportunities Section (EOS) has hosted an in-person and virtual social at the AFS Parent/International meeting for members of the LGBTQIA2S+ and BIPOC community and allies. This social has been rebranded to “The Alphabet Social”, in recognition of the many identities who are underrepresented within fisheries.

Planning is underway for the 2022 Alphabet Social in Spokane, Washington! The Alphabet Social will likely occur during the first grand social, and have an in-person and virtual option for joining. The in-person social will likely include refreshments, “Outdoors is for Everyone” swag, and lots of joy!
