Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Time to Thrive Conference
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation in partnership with the National Education Association and the American Counseling Association present Time To THRIVE, the annual national conference to promote safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth…everywhere!
We are making steady progress on the road to legal equality, yet the deck continues to be stacked against young people growing up LGBTQ in America. The impact of family rejection, bullying, and daily concern for safety weighs heavily on our youth. By engaging a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff (Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs, scout leaders, etc.), we can create a thriving LGBTQ youth population.
