WASHINGTON, D.C. — The White House LGBT Conference on Housing & Homelessness will be held in Detroit, Michigan on Friday, March 9th, and will feature remarks by Secretary for Housing & Urban Development, Shaun Donovan. The conference is hosted by the White House Office of Public Engagement in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development and the Ruth Ellis Center.

The White House LGBT Conference on Housing & Homelessness is part of a series of conferences that will be held around the country specifically focused on LGBT Americans. These White House LGBT Conferences will provide grassroots leaders, community organizers, advocates, students, and interested citizens an opportunity to hear directly from the administration officials on our efforts on behalf of LGBT Americans.

The conference will begin with a morning plenary followed by afternoon workshops. The morning session will be open to pre-credentialed media, and will include remarks by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, Wayne State University Vice President Patrick Lindsey, Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh, a panel of senior Obama Administration officials, and a panel of national advocates working with homeless LGBT youth including Ruth Ellis Center Executive Director Laura Hughes, Green Chimneys Director of LGBTQ Youth Programs Theresa Nolan, and Ali Forney Center Executive Director Carl Siciliano.

Media representatives who wish to cover the morning session must pre-credential by e-mailing their name, title, organization, position and contact information to Charmion.N.Kinder@hud.gov by Thursday, March 8 at 1 PM.
