What to Expect

Breakthrough Conversations – Morning Training (9am-12pm)
Learn all about our plan to have hundreds of persuasive conversations around the state. We will…
  1. Discover effective ways of engaging our friends, family, and allies in conversations about inclusive schools, same-sex marriage, and deeper integration of our families into the broader social fabric of American life.
  2. See breakthrough conversations in action and acquire the skills necessary to have your own persuasive conversations with people you know. It’ll be a great opportunity to practice those effective messages!
  3. Work on your own personal plan to have these conversations – YOU have the power to define how that happens.

Inclusive Schools – Afternoon Dialog (12:30pm – 3:00pm)

After lunch parents, teachers, principals and people interested in deepening the dialog are invited to stay and build on the Breakthrough Conversation skills to advocate specifically for LGBTQ inclusive schools. This portion of the event is the new and improved version of our annual forum! We will….

  1. Strategize about how to integrate family diversity curriculum, LGBTQ policies, anti-bullying efforts, and gender issues into the classroom, the administration and the home.
  2. Work together to coalition build and use the latest resources to bring more visibility and equity for all families experiencing marginalization into our educational systems.
  3. Share models that are currently in effect around the country showing real results in reducing bullying and increasing teacher and parent comfort levels about including LGBTQ families and identity within school communities.

Our Family Coalition promotes the equality and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer families with children. We foster community leadership in advocacy efforts that promote social justice.
