Event description

Description

George Takei will share pearls of wisdom and captivating stories from his 80 years. His experience spans from being a child wrongly imprisoned with his family in an internment camp for four years, to being openly gay and an advocate for the LGBTQ community, to his successful career as an actor and now his role as a social media guru with over 10 million Facebook followers. His story is one of hard work, passion and fighting for what's right. Mr Takei has often acted as a voice of inclusion for groups who've been ostrasized, and through his work has made tremendous impact to the causes close to his heart.
