In January of 2021, LGBTQ+ leaders and community members will convene virtually, to attend the National Conference on LGBTQ Equality: Creating Change. For the ninth time in the conference’s history, and in a very crucial period in the road towards equality and social justice, the conference will host a Latinx Institute. The Unión=Fuerza Latinx Institute will bring together diverse groups of LGBTQ Latina/os and allies from across the country to foster supportive relationships and build each others' capacity to advance LGBTQ Latinx activism.

Make a donation today to provide travel grants for young people, transgender Latinxs, DREAMers, immigrants, and other high-needs participants to help them contribute something meaningful to a national LGBTQ Latino dialogue. The day-long training will take place on January 28, 2021. This is the only annual national gathering where LGBTQ Latinxs can network, learn best practices, and advance equality for LGBT and Latino communities in a culturally competent, bilingual space.
