LGBTQ Task Force Conference

By Charlotte Robinson, January 20, 2018
Thousands of LGBTQ activists & allies are expected to attend the LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change Conference which is celebrating its 30th year & takes place Wednesday January 24th through Sunday January 28th at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC. This is an extremely important LGBTQ event as we head into the second year of the hate-fueled Trump administration. Creating Change Conference is the foremost political, leadership & skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement, convening over 3,500 LGBTQ activists from around the country to learn, connect & resist. Sue Hyde, founder of the event stated, "The first Creating Change was in 1988, to build a stronger LGBTQ political movement; to break the isolation that organizers & activists said they felt often being the only or one of the few people in their own city or community doing the work & to create a space where the movement could keep itself. This 30th conference in Washington, DC, where so much of the opposition we face is coming from, will be a historic one for our community as mark a year of tyranny under Trump." The opening plenary panel will discuss mobilization against a hostile administration with special guests Andrea Jenkins, the newly elected vice president of the Minneapolis City Council, Farhana Khera, the executive director of Muslim Advocates, Urvashi Vaid, Indian-American LGBTQ rights activist & former executive director of the Task Force & Diego Sanchez, the director of policy for PFLAG & was the first openly transgender staff member to serve on Capitol Hill.
