Call for Proposals

Kentucky’s annual statewide conference for LGBTQ equality convenes in the Racer Nation on the main campus of Murray State University October 23-25, 2015. College and high school students, as well as community members, who want to learn more about LGBTQ identity and social justice are invited to attend.

This year’s conference theme is With Liberty and Justice for All. Building off the tremendous legal, legislative, and social progress being made in support of LGBTQ equality, there is still much work to be done. Within the social justice arena more broadly, we have seen example after example of inequalities that past several years that lead many to ask whether justice exists for everyone. This conference will be a space to celebrate progress and examine where we go in the future.

As a result of CTK 2015, participants will:

  • Take pride in being part of the LGBTQ community, while developing as active leaders shaping their vision of the future;
  • Understand the intersectionality of identities to better advocate for liberty and justice for all; and
  • Develop and cultivate friendships with other students, faculty/staff, and community members.

We are seeking activists, educators, and students from around the state to present ideas, share perspectives, and brainstorm best practices in workshops and caucus sessions.

Proposals for 50-minute workshops for Come Together Kentucky: With Liberty and Justice for All will be accepted until September 8.

 Workshop proposals should include:

  • Workshop title;
  • Contact information for presenters;
  • Description of the workshop including the format (i.e. lecture, panel discussion, etc.) not to exceed 300 words; and
  • Brief explanation of how the proposed workshop relates to a key participant outcome area described above.

Workshop proposals should be submitted in MS Word format to Acceptance decisions will be communicated no later than September 22.
