WHEN: October 15-17, 2020 (PDT time zone)
WHERE: Virtual (via Zoom)
The goal of the #MeTooLGBTQ conference is to increase culturally competent services for victims/survivors of sexual violence and relationship violence that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer and to create space for LGBTQ+ survivors to connect with each other and community resources. This three-day conference is the only conference of its kind in the country outside of higher education and is the first step in a long-term solution, aiming to bridge the gaps between the LGBTQIA+ communities and spaces of healing and care for sexual and relationship violence.
This year’s theme focuses on resiliency and thriving, centering intersectional identities and approaches. The 2020 conference will filter its content through the dual lenses of anti-racism/racial justice and working with trauma during a pandemic.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 conference has been shifted to a virtual platform, spread across three consecutive days. See below for the conference structure.
Registration is open to service/healthcare providers* and students who are invested in better serving LGBTQ+ survivors, as well as victims/survivors of sexual violence and community members that are invested in healing, community, and ending sexual violence. New this year, we are adding a youth track for attendees aged 13-18. Workshop tracks will allow attendees to participate in interactive trainings and presentations, hear directly from LGBTQ+ survivors of sexual violence, and receive valuable resources.
Registration provides access to the Zoom information and any digital conference material.
*"Service/healthcare providers" includes but is not limited to: mental health providers, clinicians, medical providers, survivor service providers, clergy, youth-serving professionals, and other front-line providers.
