As many of you know, there was an incident with the University of Minnesota Police on Saturday evening at BECAUSE 2016. Discussions are ongoing between the GLBTA Programs Office, the Bisexual Organizing Project Board of Directors, the BECAUSE committee, and University of Minnesota Police regarding how the University Police engaged with an African American and transgender attendee of BECAUSE on Saturday night outside Coffman Union. Please send any comments or concerns you may have to BOP@bisexualorganizingproject.org.
We are taking this incident seriously as a board and a community. We will continue to keep our BOP family updated as we have more details.

With Zoom producers and experienced programming staff, we are developing a new way of experiencing BECAUSE while keeping all the engagement, support, and community that has been at the core of the conference for the last 29 years.
