Creating Change, the 21st National Conference on LGBT Equality is the annual National Grassroots Organizing and Skills Building Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Conference sponsored by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
Each year the conference is held in a different region of the United States, attracting at least 2,000 to 3,000 attendees from all over the country and is considered a unique environment where activists and leaders come together from diverse places and backgrounds to create a unique community that is both strengthening and inspiring to the participants. Since 1988, Creating Change has been the opportunity for thousands of committed people to develop and hone their skills, celebrate victories, build community, and to be inspired by visionaries of our LGBT movement and other movements for justice and equality.
The primary goal of the Creating Change Conference is to build political power from the ground up to secure our overarching goal of full equality, social justice and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the United States. Over the five days of the Creating Change Conference the conference program presents a dozen day-long institutes, sophisticated trainings in the Academy for Leadership and Action, approximately 130 workshops and caucus sessions, keynote plenary sessions, film screenings, meetings, receptions, social events, and a multitude of opportunities for attendees to meet and learn from each other.
And while there please join BiNet USA and other Bisexual, Fluid, Pansexual and allied Groups and Activists at the Bisexual Caucus at the 2009 Creating Change Conference.
The Plenary sessions provide a common meeting ground for the conference to explore current issues in the LGBT community and our Community will be tabling as well as giving a variety of presentations.
Please join us as we meet to discuss issues of importance to us as a Community, interact and introduce ourselves to members of the greater LGBT Community and all gather to work together on issues of importance to us as a whole.
Creating Change is a wonderful (as well as a useful & informative) not to be missed experience that EVERYONE should try to attend at least once.
