National LGBTQ Task Force

Creating Change 2023

February 17–21, 2023

We can't wait to join you in person!

Creating Change is the nation’s foremost political, leadership, and skills-building conference for the LGBTQ movement. We are building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we have made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. Through Creating Change and other advocacy programs, the Task Force is training and mobilizing thousands of activists across the nation to deliver a world where you can be you.

All Creating Change 2023 programming will be held at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, California.

Creating Change 365

While there will not be simultaneous hybrid/virtual programming during Creating Change in San Francisco, the Task Force has begun to launch a new program: Creating Change 365. CC 365 aims to be a series of year-round online engagements that enhance and grow the annual Creating Change experience for a virtual audience. As this program is built into the future, the Task Force will have additional capacity for individual workshop-style virtual presentations, such as those that might be hosted at an in-person conference.
