Creating Change Remixed Virtual Event

By Charlotte Robinson, March 15, 2022

The National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change conference will be held virtually this weekend on Saturday & Sunday March 19th to 20th via pheedloop. “Creating Change Remixed” will feature several plenary & keynote speakers, award presentations, daylong institutes & the annual House Ball. The program will also include the Annual State of the Movement Address with Task Force Executive Director Kierra Johnson & Deputy Executive Director Mayra Hidalgo Salazar. Cathy Renna, National LGBTQ Task Force Communications Director stated, “It is clear that 2022 is a critical year for all of us, as we face an onslaught of attacks on our rights & our very democracy & plan for the midterm elections, Creating Change has always been a place LGBTQ advocates, activists, leaders & allies come together to learn, connect with each other & organize for the year ahead. While I wish we were in person, I cannot wait - we have powerful plenaries, the State of the Movement & institutes & panels that represent the depth & breadth of the diversity of our community & it would not be Creating Change without some amazing social gatherings like our Agents of Change house ball & Gayme night. I hope more people will join the already 1000+ registrants this weekend!” Feature keynotes will be presented by Two Spirit activist Beverly Little Thunder & author & performance artist ALOK. In addition there will be the annual presentation of awards. This year’s honorees are Urvashi Vaid will be presented with the Susan J. Hyde Award for Longevity in the Movement, Carmen Vázquez will receive the Leadership Award in Aging presented by SAGE: José Albino, Ola Osifo Osaze will be honored with the Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Fund Award for Outstanding LGBTQ Leadership for Immigration Rights & Billy Lane will receive the Leather Leadership Award. Creating Change welcomes back Sandra Vallsas as the conference emcee. For Full Lineup…
