Notice from Equality NC

Greetings From Equality NC!

My name is Seth Maid and Im working with Equality NC on the 2nd annual Equality Conference and Gala. Im excited to tell you that registration is now open! Come join us Saturday, November 15th at Duke University in Durham for a full day of cutting-edge workshops, speakers, and celebration.

The Equality Conference is North Carolinas largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) forum. Last years event got rave reviews from the over 300 participants and this years event is shaping up to be even bigger and better! Our keynote panel will feature remarkable national leaders including Mara Keisling (National Center for Transgender Equality), Kate Kendell (National Center for Lesbian Rights), and Alexander Robinson (National Black Justice Coalition). Attendees will also be able to choose from a wide-ranging set of workshops covering topics such as community organizing in small towns, LGBT health and wellness, an introduction to transgender issues for LGB allies, and much, much more! And, of course, we hope youll join us at the Gala for an evening of food and festivities.

However, we need your help to ensure that communities from all across North Carolina are represented. Please forward this message to members of your organization or community and encourage them to attend! You might even consider organizing a carpool with other members of your group. Student rates are available. Please help us to make the Equality Conference and Gala an enormous success!
