January 23-27, 2013—Atlanta, GA.
Rights Working Group was a proud sponsor of the Creating Change Conference in Atlanta, the largest organizing and skills-building event for the LGBTQ community and allies. RWG Field Director, Everette Thompson, served as a co-chair for the host committee, and RWG and member organizations participated in a number of discussions about the intersections of LGBTQ experiences and the issues RWG works on including racial profiling, police accountability, and immigration.
During the week of June 25-29, 2012, the Racial Profiling: Face the Truth campaign hosted a Gender and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Awareness Week. Throughout the week RWG members explored how (perceived) gender and sexual orientation impacts people’s experiences of racial and religious profiling.
