The Equality Act passed the US House in 2021 and now moves to the US Senate for consideration. QLaw Foundation, the GSBA, and the Washington State LGBTQ Commission joined forces to bring more clarity to what the Equality Act is, how the community can be involved in supporting it, and what impact it will have on LGBTQ Washingtonians.

Our keynote conversation from Falltacular 2020, ACLU attorney Chase Strangio and National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Imani Rupert-Gordon talk about LGBTQ+ civil rights cases and movements, and how our communities are paving a path forward with love and guidance from our elders.

This session is a panel discussion with community leaders focused on how to invest resources, time, and energy into movement building work with community, especially Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC) communities. Panelists will address how legal system partners can best work with community members in a way that centers community needs and community-oriented justice. Panelists will speak from their lived experiences about the importance of movement building, identify where system partners need to plug in, and how to work towards dismantling the status quo.

This webinar is for any LGBTQ+ worker whose job has been impacted by COVID-19 and seeks information about unemployment benefits. Join us if you work for a private business, you are an independent contractor, or you are not sure if your employment is eligible for benefits.
