Thousands of LGBTQ and allied activists will gather in Dallas, Texas for the 32nd Creating Change Conference from Wednesday, January 15 through Sunday, January 19 at the Sheraton Dallas.
The Creating Change Conference, run by the National LGBTQ Task Force, is the foremost political, leadership, and skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement. Since 1988, Creating Change has created opportunities for many thousands of committed people to develop and hone their activist skills, build community, and inspire.
We chose Dallas as next year's location because we know that everything is indeed bigger in Texas, including the lesbian community. Every year we receive feedback that attendees want more lesbian-focused content, and every year we offer more! One of the best received sessions last year was a three-hour discussion titled "What in the L? All Things Lesbian." Other sessions included "Sisters are Doing it for Themselves," "Latina Lesbian LLAMA ME! Caucus" and "Circle of Women: A Dialogue Between Mono-Sexual and Plural-Sexual Women." Of course there's always the popular Lesbian Caucus and many workshops about sex, love and liberation!
The primary goal of the Creating Change Conference is to build the LGBTQ movement’s political power from the ground up to secure our overarching goal of full freedom, justice, and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people in the United States.
The 32nd Creating Change Conference will offer nearly 300 workshop and caucus sessions, 20 day long institutes, 3 plenary and keynote sessions, and evening events including dances, films and games! Visit www.creatingchange.org to register and receive more information. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer as a way to attend the conference for free.
See you in January!
