Online or Offline: What Comes Next?
Sunday, October 24
1:30 - 2:30 PM Eastern

When PFLAGers were forced to (for the first time in history) end in-person support services because of a global pandemic, it shifted everything about the ways in which we support our communities. People went online to great success. But what happens now? This panel, moderated by Laura Galeano, the PFLAG Connects Manager at PFLAG National, will include local PFLAG chapter leaders, along with representatives from HRC and the National LGBTQ Task Force, discussing what this process looked like for them. They’ll also talk about efforts to ensure that as people return to in-person events, critical virtual services aren’t ended. Find out how leaders took their work online, what they learned over the past 18 months, and what they see for the “hybrid future."
