Creating Change Conference
January 23, 2019—January 27, 2019$380
The National LGBTQ Task Force sponsors and organizes the Creating Change. 2017 marks the 29th gathering of this unique national conference and learning community. The Creating Change Conference is the pre-eminent 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 skills, celebrate victories, build community, and to be inspired by visionaries of our LGBTQ movement and allied movements for justice and equality.
What’s the goal of the Conference?
The primary goal of the Creating Change Conference is to build our 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.
At the 29th Creating Change, we will celebrate decades of building the grassroots political power of our people and families. Over 50,000 people have attended Creating Change to learn, grow and expand their skills and confidence to create change in their communities, their states, and this country. For each Creating Change attendee, our annual skills-building and training event is a life-changing experience.
What happens during the Conference?
Over the five days of the Creating Change Conference, our program presents over 22 Day Long Institutes; two dozen sophisticated trainings in the Leadership Academy; a special programming segment called Practice Spirit, Do Justice for faith leaders and organizers; approximately 250 workshops and caucus sessions; four keynote plenary sessions; worshipful gatherings; film screenings; meetings; receptions and social events, and a multitude of opportunities for attendees to meet and learn from each other.
