Conner Suddick became a member of OutFront Minnesota’s Board of Directors in January 2017 at the age of 19. Growing up in small-town Wisconsin, resources for LGBTQ+ youth were scarce. After high school, Conner moved to the Twin Cities to pursue his education to prepare himself for a career as a public interest legal educator. In May 2019, he graduated from Hamline University summa cum laude with university honors and departmental distinction in legal studies.
At Hamline, Conner double-majored in social justice and legal studies. He served as the Justice Coordinator for the Law and Justice Society, a Communications Assistant for the Hamline Sexualities and Gender Diversity Programs, chaired the inaugural Twin Cities Access to Justice Conference, and was the license-holder for TEDxHamlineUniversity. In 2018, he studied abroad in Northern Ireland at Ulster University's International Conflict Research Institute. Currently, Conner facilitates restorative justice practices in Minnesota high schools as a Promise Fellow. He works to ensure we approach justice through restorative and transformative frameworks, rather than retribution and punishment.
