OUT on the Hill Black LGBT Leadership Summit

 

Seventh Annual OUT on the Hill
Black LGBT Leadership Summit
The Post-Obama Era: What’s Next?
The Path Forward for the Black LGBTQ/SGL Community
September 14-17, 2016 | Washington, DC

 

In the age of the Obama Presidency, our community has witnessed great progress: the passage of federal hate crimes legislation; the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and open transgender military service; marriage equality became the law of the land; and the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, we have also experienced many setbacks: the continued negative impact of the criminal justice system on our communities; the rise of overt racism and nationalist militias; and the continued rise of HIV/AIDS in our community. With the conference theme, The Post-Obama Era: What’s Next?The Path Forward for the Black LGBTQ/SGL Community, this year’s OOTH2016 efforts will be deeply rooted in exploring the triumphs and challenges we have witnessed during the administration of the first Black President, and work to plot the path forward in a post-Obama era.
