Send me a reminder about this event »

In at least 76 countries same-sex behavior is criminalized while LGBTI people experience violence and discrimination worldwide. The United Nations Human Rights Council just passed a resolution condemning discrimination based upon sexual orientation and gender identity.

Join us to learn about the LGBTQ work at the United Nations and the U.S. State Department. And, help us explore together the qualities of responsible global LGBTQ activism and solidarity.
