The Embody Progress Conference


  • The Sheraton Birmingham 2101 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N, Birmingham, AL 35203 Birmingham, Alabama, 35203 United States (map)

The Embody Progress Conference is an annual conference that is held in an area of the country that is traditionally under resourced with regard to LGBTQ issues, providing access for all individuals regardless of barriers, presenting up-to-date resources and information, relevant in trends and topics, and providing space for all voices to be uplifted in unison.

The Embody Progress Conference will act as a catalyst for unifying organizers, funders, and thought leaders on a national scale with grassroots community organizers, educators, health administrators, and everyday people in hopes to educate and mobilize around issues facing LGBTQ people on local, regional, and national levels.

The Embody Progress Conference is progressive in values, ideals, and diversity. The conference acknowledges the power of sharing individual narratives and will always allow any individual to submit a proposal, lead workshops, institutes, keynotes, or any other form of facilitated breakout, regardless of educational status, background, or identity.

Purpose:
Gather LGBTQ people, organizers, educators, and health administrators nationwide to
Reclaim Southern spaces in the name of raising
Our voices, our bodies, and our strengths as
We seek to further our knowledge, resources, and networks
To bring back into our local spaces and champion the
Heritage of the shoulders we stand on.
