Federal Policy Briefing
Sunday, October 24
12:00 - 1:00 PM Eastern

After four years of largely anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and Executive Orders, the landscape for federal advocacy has changed. Where should PFLAG members focus their efforts?  This panel moderated by Diego Sanchez, Director of Advocacy, Policy & Partnerships at PFLAG National, will include movement leaders from GLSEN, the National Black Justice Coalition, the Task Force, and True Colors United. Their insight and expertise will provide PFLAGers with an overview of federal legislative priorities for LGBTQ+ organizers. Attendees will also learn how to become more effective advocates and specific ways to engage in advocacy work.
