Please join us for a funder conversation with national, regional, and local leaders about the LGBT landscape in 2017.

Moderated by Vincent Jones, Co-Chair of Southern California Blacks in Philanthropy, our panel features a variety of experts in the field:

  • Janaya Kahn, Gender Justice LA
  • Nii-Quartelai Quartey, Senior Advisor & National LGBT Liasion, AARP
  • Brad Sears, Executive Director, Williams Institute
  • Rachel Tiven, CEO, Lambda Legal
  • Geoffrey Winder, Co-Executive Director, Genders & Sexualities Network

Even before the November election, the LGBT landscape was shifting. With marriage equality legal nationwide, some felt that LGBT equality had been achieved, while others noted the reality on the ground told a different story, particularly given the rise in religious freedom bills which allow discrimination against LGBT individuals.

With the incoming Administration’s pledged support for these types of bills and the new Attorney General’s record on LGBT issues, institutional funders and individual philanthropists are seeking clarification about what's at stake and what is being done to ensure that equity and equality for the LGBT community are protected.

We hope you can join SCG, the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund, David Bohnett Foundation, Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Southern California Blacks in Philanthropy, the OUT Fund, and The California Endowment for this robust discussion.
