A GATHERING DEDICATED TO TRANS, QUEER, AND GENDER NONCONFORMING FOLX FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE

We are kicking off our local Chicagoland organizing work! This summit is for every LGBTQ person in Chicagoland who cares about economic justice and their Queer and Trans community. We are celebrating by: bringing together new members and partner organizations to share our organizing, campaign work, and collectively envision what a People of Color centered movement for economic justice could look like led by our Queer and Trans community.


WE BELIEVE BY CENTERING LGBTQ BLACK, BROWN, AND INDIGENOUS LEADERSHIP WE CAN CREATE THE MOVEMENT FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE WE DESERVE.

Connections

We can only grow stronger by supporting each other's leadership. This will be an inclusive space to connect with LGBTQ folks interested in Economic Justice.

It will be a space to celebrate each other's brilliance and success. Meet old and new people doing powerful work in the world.

Post Summit Events

We’re building a space where workers can go to stand up to workplace discrimination and fight for economic justice.
