The organizers of the Creating Change Conference today announced the full slate of workshop and other sessions organized for the 33rd annual conference. From activism to faith to fundraising, with some timely twists on popular workshops like “Sex in the Times of COVID,” the Creating Change conference will have programs of interest to diverse activists and cover a lot of ground in this unique time for LGBTQ+ communities.

Every year the Creating Change team has curated a diverse, timely and provocative set of workshops and this year is no exception, despite the challenges of having the conference convert to online.

Held virtually from January 28 through January 31, 2021, the conference will include four plenary sessions, 16 day long institutes, and 48 workshop and caucus sessions. The four day long event, run by the National LGBTQ Task Force, is a space for learning, connecting, and growing as LGBTQ activists, leaders, allies, and changemakers from across the nation join together. For the first time in its 33 year history, The Creating Change Conference will hold all day long institutes, workshops, keynotes, and caucus sessions online.

“Creating Change has a diverse and powerful lineup of workshops at this year’s conference,” said conference Director Andy Garcia, “ We will offer an opportunity to discuss all those things you are told to never bring up at the holiday table: politics, religion, and sex! But seriously, from the hard conversations about the issues we face to organizing strategies in these challenging times to the chance to enjoy each other in community, we are doing our best to create an amazing experience for all who join us,” concluded Garcia.

The Creating Change Conference is committed to radical accessibility. Everyone benefits when everyone participates fully and equitably in every aspect of the conference. ASL and Spanish interpretation of individual workshop and caucus sessions will be provided if requested in advance. Further, no one will be turned away for financial reasons.
