SORT BY Relevancy
GAY CONVERSION THERAPY – REALLY?
In case you never heard of it, some people think they can convert gays, especially young people, into heterosexuals by using a type of “therapy.” Really! Of course this assumes that being gay is like a bad habit or mental illness that can be cured. So what is this all about, does it help, does it hurt, and what are we doing about it?
Oregon is one state among several that recently passed a law prohibiting conversion therapy, and other states are considering such bans.
Samantha Ames is an attorney with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) knows about conversion, what it’s supposed to do and what it really does. She’s served as a Policy Fellow in Washington, D.C. before moving to San Francisco to work as a staff attorney focusing on conversion therapy cases. She has testified on the harms of conversion therapy and the constitutionality of efforts to end it before both state and federal bodies, as well as at the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland.
Please join us to learn more about conversion and the hype around it.

Immigration might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of issues affecting the LGBTQ community but it has a deep impact on the lives of many LGBTQ families especially immigrants in our community who face unique and often daunting challenges.
Immigration equality demands fair and equal execution of the laws and rights of non-citizens regardless of nationality or where they come from. LGBTQ individuals are being detained when no crime has been committed with reports of transgender persons being isolated weeks on end while awaiting a court appearance or deportation. In over 77 countries around the world being gay is illegal. For many who are undocumented and those seeking asylum, being deported is the equivalent to a death sentence. The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) has been advancing the civil and human rights of LGBTQ people and their families through litigation, legislation, policy, and public education since 1977.
America is a country built on the immigrant experience of many cultures, nationalities and ethnicities but for LGBTQ people seeking freedom and opportunities the pathways are hindered by roadblocks of inequality, transphobia, homophobia and often racism. Are you or your partner an immigrant, undocumented, or looking for help maneuvering the immigration laws? Do you want to learn how you can be a part of the fight for immigration equality? Join us for this important conversation with Maya Rupert.

La Raza expert and Patriot, "Arizona Laura" reading from La Raza Text on the Ex-CONservative Radio Hour. + Remarks by the President to the National Council of La Raza Marriott Wardman Park Hotel Washington, D.C. 12:50 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you! Thank you so much. (Applause.) What an extraordinary crowd. Thank you. Please have a seat.
It is good to be back with NCLR. (Applause.) It is good to see all of you.
Right off the bat, I should thank you because I have poached quite a few of your alumni to work in my administration. (Laughter.) They're all doing outstanding work. Raul Yzaguirre, my ambassador to the Dominican Republic -- (applause) -- Latinos serving at every level of my administration. We've got young people right out of college in the White House. We've got the first Latina Cabinet Secretary in history, Hilda Solis. (Applause.) So we couldn't be prouder of the work that so many folks who've been engaged with La Raza before, the handiwork that they're doing with our administration. And as Janet mentioned, obviously we're extraordinarily proud of someone who is doing outstanding work on the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor. (Applause.)
Earlier this year, NCLR teamed up with the Center for Community Capital at the University of North Carolina for a study on the long-term impact of the housing crisis on Latino children and families. The study has been the subject of blog posts on The Huffington Post. Tune in as former NAHREP Chair Tino Diaz and co-founder Ernie Reyes interview NCLR Housing Policy Director Janis Bowdler about the study results and what they signal for the Hispanic community in the future.
Arizona’s immigration law SB1070 was enacted last April, touching off a firestorm of controversy and outcry from the Hispanic community. Since then people have marched in protests, waged boycotts and mounted campaigns against the law. NAHREP Chair Alex Chaparro and Co-founder Ernie Reyes tackle this subject and what it means to NAHREP members and the Hispanic homebuyers they serve. Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum and Clarissa Martinez, Director of NCLR’s Immigration Policy and National Campaigns are featured guests and will share their perspectives on the law and what their respective organizations are doing to counter it.
The Housing crisis and the personal losses it led to for working-class families cast a spotlight on business practices across the real estate industry. New regulations are changing the business as we know it with new licensing standards and education requirements. But ethics can't be legislated. As NAHREP prepares to launch an update to its Code of Trust, which will be unveiled at the 2010 NAHREP/AREAA Conference at a certification course, the power of individual actions and business practices come into focus again. Tune in as NAHREP Chair Alex Chaparro and Vice Chair Carmen Mercado discuss the critical need for business standards with Code of Trust architects Tino Diaz and Yamila Ayad, Co-founder Ernie Reyes and Janis Bowdler of NCLR.
