LGBT in the South Conference
About this event:
Equipping Grassroots Leaders, Embracing Intersections, and Empowering Collaboration
UPDATE: The conference is now sold out – we are thrilled to have 500 activists and organizers joining us in Asheville!
The conference will combine workshops to build organizing skills, facilitated discussions about topics impacting LGBT* Southerners, and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) sessions for attorneys on topics of LGBT* law.
At this critical time for the equality movement in the South, the conference will connect and educate Southern organizers and local practitioners to better serve the LGBT* community.
The core themes of this year’s conference are intersectionality and collaboration.
We are honored to have Mandy Carter, a dynamic Southern leader and long-time activist in the civil rights and LGBT movements, as our keynote speaker.
The conference is a project of the Campaign for Southern Equality.
Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the Campaign for Southern Equality is a non-profit organization that advocates for the full equality of LGBT individuals and families across the South.
