LGBT equality conference set for SF

A two-day conference meant to help build a regional network working for full, national LGBT equality is set to begin Saturday, April 17, in San Francisco.

The Building Bridges conference, at the Mission Cultural Center, 2868 Mission Street, is a regional gathering spawned by the huge Equality Across America rally in Washington, D.C., last October.

The conference begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and goes through 5 p.m. Sunday, April 18.

A wide array of topics – including housing, immigration reform, marriage equality, and labor – will be featured, reflecting organizers’ desire to bring people from diverse backgrounds together.

“This conference will build strategy and plans for successful protest, community organizing, civil disobedience, and direct action via a regional and national network,” according to the meeting’s mission statement.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but general pricing is $10-$15 sliding scale. Optional $40 “solidarity ticketing” is available for those willing to help make the conference available to everyone.

Tickets are available online, and will also be available at the door, provided the conference doesn’t sell out.
