Work for LGBTQ+ equality is inextricably linked to work for racial justice, and it is critical for white LGBTQ+ people to be engaged in anti-racist work.

On June 9, white people working in the LGBTQ+ movement, in partnership with the LGBTQ #BlackLivesMatter Town Hall hosted by Equality Florida, held a live conversation focusing on the responsibility and opportunities white people have to challenge systemic racism and white supremacy and to hold systems of power accountable.
