Panel Discussion: Supporting LGBTQ+ Communities

Training Training Department

Given the recent attacks on the LGBTQ+ community across the country, CFT will be hosting a panel discussion for our members to gain knowledge and understanding of what we can do together to mitigate these attacks and provide resources to help our communities. Please join us for this important and much-needed discussion.


  • To get legal updates on the anti-LGBTQ+ legislation that is being introduced across the country
  • To disseminate information on how we can help empower the LGBTQ+ communities and allies
  • To gain an understanding of the rightwing attacks and how they part of a bigger strategy to attack democrats and harm our LGBTQ+ communities 
  • To share resources (See CFT’s curated collection of resources)
