Creating Change Virtual Conference

By Charlotte Robinson, December 23, 2021

The National LGBTQ Task Force has announced that due to uptick in Omicron variant cases the 34th annual Creating Change Conference will now be held virtually with dates for the online conference to be announced shortly. Kierra Johnson, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force stated, “While disappointing, we must put the health & wellness of our attendees, volunteers, staff & other conference supporters first & have decided to move forward with a virtual only conference. Despite the strict protocols we instituted, given the surge of the Omicron variant cases, we feel the safest & most responsible decision is to gather virtually as we did in January 2021. We know that Creating Change is a unique & empowering experience for our community & everyone who attends brings so much love & passion to the conference but our responsibility first & foremost is caring for each other.” Danny Linden, Creating Change Conference Director concluded “We will announce what programming will look like for Creating Change 2022 & beyond as soon as possible. We are grateful to all of the attendees, participants & sponsors for their understanding as we transition to a virtual experience & the opportunity to bring Creating Change to an even larger audience.” The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice & equity 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 with Mayra Hidalgo Salazar, Deputy Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force about what she hopes to accomplish at The Task Force & about the 34th Creating Change Conference before it was switched to virtual due to the omicron variant cases of COVID.
