Last February, the HRC Foundation hosted its second annual Time to THRIVE conference, which featured more than 60 workshops that addressed the urgent challenges facing LGBTQ and questioning youth, both in and out of the classroom.
 
As we work to protect LGBTQ youth and increase LGBTQ visibility, Time to THRIVE is a vital park of work at HRC. The annual conference provides educators, counselors, coaches and other youth-serving professionals the tools they need to help all of our young people thrive.
 
The conference is the only one of its kind, gathering resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field and featuring a wide array of provocative and inspirational speakers.
 
Speakers at the last conference included Michael Sam, George Takei, Betty DeGeneres, Debi Jackson, Judy Shepard, Dolores Huerta and many resilient LGBTQ young people who shared their stories and suggestions on how to create positive change.
 

 
The third annual Time to THRIVE Conference will take place February 12-14, 2016, near Dallas, Texas where presenting sponsors include AT&T and BBVA. Early Bird registration discounts end tomorrow, so sign up today.

Counting down to 2016, HRC is celebrating our greatest milestones and victories in 2015. It has been another incredible year for LGBT equality and we could not have done it without you -- our members, readers and supporters--and we look forward to continuing our work in 2016. Stay tuned for more highlights from 2015.
