HRC Arkansas Attends Time to THRIVE to Better Support LGBTQ Youth in the Natural State

by HRC staff February 24, 2016


Earlier this month, HRC Arkansas was proud to attend HRC Foundation’s third annual Time to THRIVE conference to promote the safety, inclusion and wellbeing of LGBTQ youth.

HRC Arkansas State Director Kendra Johnson and Field Organizer James Rector were excited to travel to Texas to meet hundreds of advocates and leaders in the LGBTQ and allied community. The delegates brought back with them the knowledge and connections to move work forward and support LGBTQ youth in the Natural State.

“We are ready to get to work to develop policy changes and educational opportunities that create safer and more inclusive environments for both students and faculty on college and university campuses,” Rector said. “Part of our strategy is to rally educators, administrators, students, parents, counselors and social workers as incubators and support networks for the work ahead.”

You can find more information about Time to THRIVE here and to get involved with other youth serving professionals in Arkansas, contact james.rector@hrc.org.
