Creating Change is a national political, leadership, and skill-building conference for the LGBTQ community, organized and hosted annually by the National LGBTQ Task Force. The day-long Bisexual+ Institute at Creating Change is an important event in bi+ organizing!
LGBTQIA2S+ (plus) leaders at Creating Change do not get financial compensation for the time, energy, and emotional and intellectual labor they invest into organizing the institute, outside of the waiver of their registration fees. They have to figure out, on their own, how they'll get there, where to stay, how they'll eat, and how to get around at the conference.
Statistically, bi+ (plus) folk are more likely to be un- or underemployed than both straight people AND gays and lesbians - and that's especially true for bi+ (plus) folk who are also BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). In addition, many of us tend to have multiple disabilities and access needs, which becomes another financial barrier (in the U.S., 82.5% of disabled people are UNEMPLOYED).
The Bisexual+ Institute is a critically important part of Creating Change, but without facilitators, it won't happen! If you are able, please consider making a contribution by CLICKING HERE, or share to spread the word! Thank you!

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 30 years.
Build, serve and advocate for an empowered bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and unlabeled (bi+) community to promote social justice.
Within the next five years grow Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP) into a successfully-run Upper Midwest nonprofit organization with annual funding of $100,000 that provides community building, education, and advocacy for the bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and unlabeled (bi+) community and our allies.
