2006 Equality Rider: Rachel Powell

Name: Rachel Powell
Hometown: Shreveport, Louisiana
Age: 19

Statement:
For me, the Equality Ride is truly a diamond in the rocks — a chance to give meaning to my life, a chance to make better someone else’s life. The Equality Ride is only a small piece of the GLBT-freedom pie, but I feel it is an excellent push; moreover, it could be the push that enlightens and motivates the younger generation. Securing academic freedom ensures the uninhibited flow of thought and information that will make us all better learners, better citizens, better people.

Sponsors:
Rachel has been sponsored a total amount of $1225.25.
