As PFLAG celebrates its 50th anniversary, there is no better time to gather for four days of connecting, networking, sharing, and--most of all--learning with love.
Through workshops, panels, and presentations from community leaders, we'll provide insight, expertise, training, strategies, and best practices so that PFLAG friends, families, members, supporters, and leaders can work together to fulfill our organizational mission to create a caring, just, and affirming world for LGBTQ+ people and those who love them.
Whether you're a longtime PFLAGer or new to the PFLAG family, join us in Washington, DC, October 19-22, at Learning with Love: The 2023 PFLAG National Convention.
