Rise Up: Igniting Our Response to the National LGBTQ+ Emergency: Thursday, June 13 - Virtual Event

Join us for a crucial and timely panel discussion during Pride Month 2024 as we confront the urgent need for action against the rising tide of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation sweeping across the nation. Last year marked a historic declaration by the Human Rights Campaign, recognizing a national state of emergency for LGBTQ+ Americans due to the alarming surge in discriminatory bills being signed into law. These legislative assaults not only perpetuate stigma and violence but also enshrine discrimination in our legal system, inflicting profound harm on the mental and physical well-being of LGBTQ+ individuals. Even the debates surrounding these bills tear communities apart, compelling some families to flee their home states as political refugees.

As we anticipate the 2024 legislative session to continue this onslaught, we must unite in solidarity and resilience. Our event aims to inform and mobilize the LGBTQ+ community and our allies, galvanizing support for our fight for equality and justice. Join us as we amplify the voices of leading AAPI and LGBTQ+ advocacy organizations, shedding light on the importance of staying informed and taking action in the face of this existential threat to LGBTQ+ rights.
