Minneapolis to host federal LGBT meet


The White House LGBT Conference on Families takes place in Minneapolis on April 28, with speakers from the Justice and Health and Human Services departments.

Preliminary plans include addresses from Bryan Samuels, commissioner of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families at Health and Human Services and Stuart Delery, acting assistant attorney general with the Justice Department.

The White House Office of Public Engagement, in partnership with the Family Equality Council, is sponsoring the event.

A White House statement said participants can expect “important updates from senior administration officials and have the opportunity to learn about federal government resources and opportunities through workshop sessions.”

The conference is part of a series that began in February and concludes in June.

Previous conferences covered health, housing and homelessness, safe schools and hate crimes.

Future conferences will cover HIV/AIDS, aging and international human rights.
