Unite and Fight:
Strategizing for LGBT Equality
May 21-23, 2010
Austin Community College, Eastview campus
Harvey Milk Day
March and Rally at the Texas State Capitol
on Saturday, May 22
On the weekend of May 21-23, activists from across Texas will gather to discuss and debate how to achieve full federal equality while forming a strong regional grass roots network. In addition there will be lots of time to hang out and socialize with other LGBT activists and allies in the region. Don’t miss the opportunity to build unity and meet new activist friends in Austin, May 21-23.
Shape the strategy for our next steps as a movement. Hear from prominent activists on what works and what doesn’t. Socialize with other individuals and groups in our region. Learn from educational workshops on topics that matter to you.
Plus to honor the legacy of struggle of Harvey Milk, the Equality Across America network has called for actions across the country on May 22, Harvey Milk Day. In that spirit, the Saturday of the Texas Conference will culminate with a march and rally in downtown Austin.
