The 2013 PFLAG National Convention

One Voice Can Change The World:
Honor the Legacy. Inspire The Future.

Washington, D.C. ~ October 24-27, 2013 

PFLAG's work started with one mother in New York City raising a homemade sign--and her lone voice--in public support of her gay son. That work continued as more parents, family members, and friends united with LGBT people across the country to stand up in support of civil rights and equality and against discrimination and hatred.

Each time another voice is raised the PFLAG legacy continues.

Now, join PFLAGers from across the country at the 2013 PFLAG National Convention to learn new skills, build relationships, and celebrate this work. Whether you are a seasoned leader or just getting started, there is no better way to gain valuable new perspectives!

Thursday, October 24th is PFLAG National Lobby Day. Get energized and inspired as we visit the halls of Congress for one-on-one meetings with Senators and Representatives, elevating our unique and united voices on the values that our families hold dear.

Then, get ready for three days of support, education, and advocacy training, getting the resources you need to make your chapter’s goals a reality.
