Description

Conference Logo

There is always a need to “have the conversation” and “invite dialogue” surrounding issues that affect those whom we serve as counseling professionals. However, simply having the conversation is not enough. In order to affect change, we have a responsibility as professional counselors to take action. The LGBTQ+ rights movement is built on more than just words and discussion. It has been propelled forward by those willing to take action for equality. Although the movement continues to see great progress and change for LGBTQ+ people, the struggle remains far from over. As the ACA Code of Ethics and the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies remind us, professional counselors are called upon to be advocates for those we serve; to be agents of social justice. Part of who we are as counselors is that we do more than talk and listen; we take action. The ALGBTIC 2018 Conference will serve as a platform where we as counseling professionals will come together to do more than share and learn valuable information on how to better assist LGBQ+ and Trans* clients, students, and professionals. We will leave with valuable tools that assist us in taking action.

The ALGBTIC 2018 Conference is more than just a conference; it is a call to action. It is also a reminder that the battle for LGBTQ+ rights, equality, equity, and inclusion needs professionalcounselors to rise up and take action. After all, actions are greater than words.
