On September 7th & 8th we’re convening our community to build a Queer and Trans movement for Economic Justice.
A GATHERING DEDICATED TO TRANS, QUEER, AND GENDER NONCONFORMING ECONOMIC JUSTICE
The Summit will be our first convening dedicated to celebrating community resilience and building LGBTQ worker power. Together, we will collectively envision what a People of Color centered movement for economic justice could look like led by our Queer and Trans community.
We are kicking off our local Chicagoland organizing work at the LGBTQ Economic Justice Summit. We are celebrating by: recruiting new members and partner organizations to our network, sharing our organizing and campaign work, and engaging are partners and allies.
YOUR INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE

The Summit will provide space for organizers to share strategies in a safe, collaborative space that builds power for the larger community.
