The Virtual LGBTQ Youth Convening 2020

Hello LGBTQ Youth, Advocates, and Allies!
You are invited to join the LGBTQ Center OC’s 2020 Orange County LGBTQ Youth Convening! The theme for this year’s conference is “Still We Rise: Evolution Through Education.”
Please register for the LGBTQ Youth Convening here:

The Virtual LGBTQ Youth Convening is a free, online multi-day conference that is led and organized by youth leaders from Youth Empowered to Act, the LGBTQ Center OC’s youth leadership group.
This event is open to all ages and backgrounds, such as but not limited to: youth, students, parents, families, teachers, school administrators, professionals, and local community members and organizers.
We invite the entire community to experience three empowering and educational days full of influential speakers, workshop presenters, and organizations working to provide affirming mental health practices to create supportive and inclusive spaces for LGBTQ youth in Orange County and beyond.
The Virtual LGBTQ Youth Convening will take place on Zoom, an online digital platform, for three consecutive Saturdays in May. Each Convening session will have a dedicated theme of the day—mental health and support; education; and advocacy and empowerment. Links and access sent to registered participants.
