Facilitated conversation to talk about and address racism within the LGBTQIA+ communities.

Racism within LGBTQIA+ communities is a huge issue that often goes unaddressed, specifically in white-dominated spaces. When we do talk about the problems of racism within the LGBTQIA+ community, it hardly goes beyond talk. We want to foster a conversation not only about the issue, but also on how we can go about making concrete steps toward addressing racism within our communities, with a focus on the work that white queers must do.

Sponsored by the Stonewall Center, Racial Justice Coalition and the Pride Alliance.
