OUT on the Hill Black LGBT Leadership Summit

 

In the age of the Obama presidency, our community has witnessed great progress: the passage of federal hate crimes legislation; the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and the implementation of open transgender military service; the Supreme Court upholds marriage equality as the law of the land; and the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, we have also experienced many setbacks: the continued negative impact of the criminal justice system on our communities; the rise of overt racism and nationalist militias; and the continued rise of HIV/AIDS in our community. With the conference theme, The Post-Obama Era: What’s Next?, this year’s OOTH2016 efforts will be deeply rooted in exploring the triumphs and challenges that we have witnessed during the administration of the first Black President, and work to plot the path forward in a post-Obama era.
