Call for Creating Change workshop proposals: Deadline is Sept. 30!

Training sessionThe 24th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change convenes in Baltimore, Md., on Jan. 25 – 29, 2012. Our robust five-day program will train you, motivate you, entice you to reach for and achieve your goals and aspirations as an activist in the LGBT political movement. Hey, it’s why the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force sponsors and produces this unique and mind-expanding event each and every year.

But the Task Force doesn’t want you to only learn at Creating Change 2012. We want you to teach, too!

Nearly 50 percent of our annual program is presented by folks just like you. Activists and organizers from around the United States present projects, ideas, strategies and community-building work in hundreds of workshops and dozens of caucus sessions.

So, don’t just sit on your expertise. Present your best practices, your hard-earned wisdom, your great ideas in a workshop session at Creating Change 2012.

We know you’ve got the moxy and vinegar to do your world-changing work every day. Now it’s time to show the movement.

  • Got a new and innovative way you are organizing in your community?
  • Bringing your members together to learn about racial justice?
  • Know how to recruit and retain your volunteers?
  • Moving forward on your college campus with ever-better organizing to create a better campus climate for LGBT students?
  • Mobilizing your church congregation to participate in LGBT campaigns?
  • Educating the broader communities in exciting and unusual ways?
  • Delivering services to LGBT youth or elders?
  • Building durable relationships with non-LGBT groups in your community?

Creating Change is chock-a-block with people who hunger to know what you’re doing; how you’re doing it; and, most importantly, how they can do it, too.

Proposals for sessions at the 2012 Creating Change Conference will be accepted online until Sept. 30, 2011.
