Equality NC annual conference and gala on Saturday, Nov 15


We've had a couple days now for the results of Tuesday's historic election to sink in. If you're like me, you're wondering what's next for our state and our movement for LGBT equality

Join Equality NC next Saturday, November 15 in Durham, for some answers.

What happens now in the wake of California's vote to ban marriage equality?
Kate Kendell, Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights and a member of the Executive Committee for the No on 8 campaign in California, will share her experience on the campaign and what's next in California and the fight for marriage equality.

What does the election mean for LGBT people of color?
Alexander Robinson, CEO of the National Black Justice Coalition, will provide his insight.

How do the elections impact effort to pass transgender inclusive legislation?
Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, will fill us in on efforts to pass an inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act in Congress and advance transgender rights at the state level.

It's not often that we get to have three brilliant leaders in one place at such a pivotal time for our movement, but we've got 'em at the Equality Conference & Gala. Register now!

And, hey, what's all that mean for us right here in the Tar Heel State?
Ian Palmquist will be giving his annual State of Equality presentation, sharing successes and challenges this year and our vision of what we can achieve in the legislative session starting in January.

Plus, the legislative panel will feature Sen. Julia Boseman, our state's first and only out legislator, along with allies Rep. Paul Luebke of Durham and Rep. Susan Fisher of Asheville.

Come to the Equality Conference during the day at Duke Universitys Bryan Center for answers to all these questions and more.

Come to the Equality Gala at the Nasher Museum of Art to celebrate how far we've come and support the critical work of Equality NC Foundation.
