CCCLGBTQ+ SUMMIT - A Virtual Event. Unapologetic.  Fighting for the liberation of queer, transgender & non-binary students. May 4-5, 2022


Early registration is now open for this year’s LGBTQ+ Summit on Wednesday and Thursday, May 4 and 5. This conference is a space for students, faculty, classified professionals and administrators. In previous years at least half of our attendees were students. 

The CCC LGBTQ+ Summit 2022 is an opportunity to collaborate with members of the California Community Colleges at all levels. We will learn from each other’s innovative and successful ideas that will transform campuses so that we better serve and affirm LGBTQ+ students. 

The conference is focused on improving not only individual community college campuses but also encouraging changes at the structural level.

Confirmed keynote speakers include California Community Colleges Deputy Chancellor Daisy Gonzales, PhD., and Bamby Salcedo, a highly regarded activist, community organizer and social justice advocate.
