What is it like to run for local office as an agnostic in an area frequently targeted by religious extremists? What does it take to win? Karl Frisch will explore these and other issues as he discusses his successful campaign for Fairfax County School Board last year when he became the first openly LGBTQ+ local elected official in the history of Virginia’s largest county.
Thursday, November 19, 6:30-8pm. We’ll be streaming this talk on Zoom — learn more about Zoom and sign up for free here.

Karl Frisch is a member of the Fairfax County School Board – the first openly LGBTQ+ local elected official in the history of Virginia’s largest county. During his 2019 campaign, he received more votes than any previous candidate for School Board in his district. On the Board, Frisch will prioritize investing in student success and safety, inspiring future careers, promoting environmental sustainability, advancing equity and inclusion, providing responsible fiscal stewardship, maintaining high academic standards, and supporting teachers and staff with better pay and resources.
