The Human Rights Campaign is preparing to host its annual Time to Thrive national conference, which will be held April 28-30, 2017, in Washington, DC. Presented in partnership with the American Counseling Association and the National Education Association, the three-day event focuses on promoting the safety and well-being of LGBTQ youth. 

Educators, physicians, counselors, religious leaders, and other youth-serving professionals from across the country will gather at the conference to take part in an education program comprising workshops on topics such as bullying prevention, gender-inclusive schools, foster care, gender diversity, and LGBTQ advocacy. Time to Thrive 2017 will also feature presentations from several well-known speakers, including New York Times columnist Charles Blow and award-winning journalist Katie Couric. During the event, Couric will receive the Human Rights Campaign’s Upstander Award for her work on advancing the understanding of gender and LGBTQ issues.
