What: ‘State of the LGBT Movement’ address at the National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change

More than 2,500 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) allies are in Baltimore this week for the largest national convening of LGBT advocates. They are strategizing and mobilizing at the start of the critical election year.

Who: Rea Carey, Executive Director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

On the heels of President Obama’s very own “State of the Union” address, Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, will take stock of the past year and present a vision for the year ahead in the political and social struggle for LGBT equality with her annual “State of the LGBT Movement” address.

This is a highlight speech of the year for the LGBT rights movement in America and one of the most anticipated events of the Creating Change conference. Carey will also address critical legislative issues specifically affecting the LGBT community.

When: Friday, January 27, 1:30PM

Where: Hilton Baltimore Hotel, Key Ballroom 401 West Pratt Street, Baltimore, Md.
