BOP's POC representation is poor. Historically, our relationships with POC communities have been poor. We need to do better, and we need more faces in the room from the parts of our community we are not reaching or serving. This is not an expectation for POC to come hold our hands and educate us about their oppression; it is an invitation to have a seat at a table that has previously failed to create space for you and needs to do better. We hope that we can start this year by making real strides towards better serving our Bi+ POC communities.

We hope you will join us for the BECAUSE Conference as it's never been before: a hybrid event of in-person and online workshops, speakers, and social events. 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.
