Saturday, May 6 | 10:45 a.m.–noon
In spite of progressive policies and increased cultural sensitivity, generally, homophobia and violence against LGBTQ community persists. A general tenet of community planning is to promote the health, safety and welfare of a community, and a specific mission of several APA National Divisions is to provide a voice to the issues that minority and disenfranchised populations face.
Saturday, May 6 | 1 p.m.–2:15 p.m.
Back by popular demand, this lively discussion will allow new grads and young professionals to learn from seasoned professionals with more than 15 years of experience.
