THE STORY:


I went to my first Creating Change Conference in the mid-1990s, thanks to the generous financial support of a Louisville, Ky., benefactor who wanted to raise up powerful LGBTQ leaders and straight allies to make a difference for our state, nation and world. 

That experience changed my life and I've been returning to Creating Change every year that I am able. There, thousands of people of great diversity are inspired, equipped and empowered with the tools they need to create change in their communities, schools, congregations, and far beyond, for racial, social, economic, gender and sexual justice.

This year, for #GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 29), I am joining the team of the National LGBTQ Task Force to raise $25,000 for the Creating Change Scholarship Fund to support 70 scholarships to this inspired and inspiring conference.

You will have dozens, if not hundreds, of requests to make a contribution on #GivingTuesday. I hope you'll especially consider this one, as a way of investing in present and future generations of progressive LGBTQ movement leaders.
