About this event

  • 1 day 7 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

The 2023 BIG Conference will be focused on the theme of Building Momentum Across the Movement. The two day event will include collaborative sessions, panel discussions, interactive working sessions and more, as we dig deep into: Building Intersectional Coalitions, Shifting Culture and Narratives, and Nurturing a Diverse Policy Landscape.

We are excited to host this year's conference in Chicago, IL, a city that has led a range of highly successful policy, pilot and coalition-building efforts. Throughout the two days the voices and experiences of those in the Chicago community will be integrated into the broader discussions about our shared national vision for a more equitable and just society, and the path that we are on collectively towards realizing it.

We look forward to seeing you in June!

A note about ticket prices:

Our registration tiers reflect a sliding scale, a tool for establishing economic justice, introduced to us by our partners Point Source Youth. In this registration pricing system, everyone ultimately pays a similar percentage of their individual or organizational income to attend the conference. This scale is about recognizing the privileges and resources that make paid events disproportionately more accessible for groups with higher operating budgets and for individuals with greater wealth.

We’re committed to making our conference as accessible as possible. We recognize that the impacts of COVID-19 aggravate and deepen already existing forms of systemic oppression. Beyond COVID-19 and its impacts, we realize that individuals and communities experience continued harm and marginalization as a result of long-standing inequities in the US . We hope that this sliding scale facilitates increased access to this event and serves as an invitation to both think and speak deeply about the societal factors that create such stark disparities in wealth and resources in the US. We trust you to evaluate your ability to pay accordingly. Help us keep this conference as accessible as possible!
