12th Annual UCSF LGBTQIA+ Health Forum featuring Alicia Garza!

This innovative program is the oldest and largest student-run LGBTQIA+ health forum in the country. The forum educates attendees from around the country about healthcare disparities faced by LGBTQIA+ individuals and their communities, and aims to prepare current and future healthcare providers on how to better serve the needs of LGBTQIA+ people.

All interested health professional/graduate students and community members, whether LGBTQIA+ or not, are warmly invited to attend this popular annual event. All attendees must purchase tickets.

We are excited to announce our special keynote speaker, Alicia Garza!

Alicia Garza  founded the Black Futures Lab to make Black communities powerful in politics. In 2018, the Black Futures Lab conducted the largest survey of Black communities in over 150 years.

Alicia believes that Black communities deserve what all communities deserve — to be powerful in every aspect of their lives. An innovator, strategist, organizer, and cheeseburger enthusiast, she is the co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter and the Black Lives Matter Global Network, an international organizing project to end state violence and oppression against Black people. The Black Lives Matter Global Network now has 40 chapters in 4 countries.

Alicia serves as the Strategy & Partnerships Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the nation’s premier voice for millions of domestic workers in the United States. She is also the co-founder of Supermajority, a new home for women’s activism. She shares her thoughts on the women transforming power in Marie Claire magazine every month.

Her forthcoming book, tentatively titled How to Turn a Hashtag Into a Movement will be published in 2020, and she warns you — hashtags don’t start movements. People do.
