Creating Change Conference (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, January 07, 2020
This week I talked with trans activist Monica Roberts who is being honored at the 32nd Creating Change Conference run by the National LGBTQ Task Force that takes place at the Sheraton Dallas in Dallas, Texas January 15th through January 19th, 2020. Roberts is the founding editor of the award-winning TransGriot blog & a longtime award-winning human rights advocate. She has been advocating for the human rights of transgender people for over 20 years with a focus on the issues affecting Black trans people & will be receiving the Susan J. Hyde Award for Longevity in the Movement sponsored by Wild Geese Foundation. This year’s theme is “Love, Learning & Liberation” with special focus addressing issues facing trans women of color & the work being done to address anti-trans violence & systemic discrimination. Since 1988 the Creating Change Conference has created networking opportunities & inspiration for thousands of committed people to develop & hone their activist skills. The Creating Change Conference is the foremost political leadership and skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement. Over 4,000 people from all over the country will attend this five-day program that features over 300 workshops, training sessions, meetings & events. The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice & equality for LGBTQ people. They are building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives. I talked to Monica about what she hopes to accomplish at this year’s Creating Change Conference & her spin on our LGBTQ issues.
