Event Category:

What: A FREE, ONLINE conference

Who can go?: Queer and trans/nb youth (and allies) as long as you fall between the ages of 13 and 24 years old

Where?: The conference is hosted on Zoom and Discord, and pre-registration is required for all Zoom-hosted workshops!

Rise Up! is a seven-day, free, online conference  that explores what it means to be a young queer organizer today. The conference is open to any queer, trans/ nonbinary and ally youth ages 13-24 years old, with access to the internet. 

Workshops will focus on everything from the intersection of race and queerness, to creating sustainable activism, to exploring how we can expand our scope to include transformative and healing justice in our organizing. Our conference prioritizes the voices, organizing, and safety of black and brown queer and trans youth of color.

*During Rise Up!, we will not be hosting our usual daily programs. We will return to our normal programs on July 20th.*
