On September 16-20, 2015, Black lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activists, thought leaders, elected officials, the faith community and emerging leaders from across the country will gather in the nation's capital for the National Black Justice Coalition's (NBJC) 6th Annual OUT on the Hill Black LGBT Leadership Summit (OOTH2015). Participants will experience an inspiring week of thought leadership, strategy development and organizing.
This year's conference theme, We Are Family: Building Stronger Roots Together, calls to action the Black family construct in addressing health and wellness issues through four key summit tracks: health care (e.g., physical, mental, emotional, behavioral); economics (e.g., financial health, economic justice, employment security, housing, livable wage, entrepreneurship) ; spirituality (e.g., faith, religion, wholeness, purpose); and social justice (e.g., criminal justice, education, racial profiling, voting rights).
OOTH2015 will provide plenary sessions, workshops, networking opportunities and other programmatic efforts to raise awareness and take action on issues impacting the Black LGBT community. OOTH2015 activities will include the opportunity to participate in the
Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Annual Legislative Conference (CBCF-ALC). Join thousands of African American policy makers, key influencers, organizers and concerned citizens in our nation's capital to advocate for an African American agenda inclusive of Black LGBT people.
