Moving Forward Together: The Winter Conference of the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus, is scheduled for February 22 through 24 in Jacksonville. This conference is all about the future — of our Caucus, our Party, and Florida. We’re featuring the next generation of leaders who are taking charge of our state to make it work for US.

Moving Forward Together has all the hallmarks of a Caucus conference: informative panels, provocative speakers, state and local elected officials, campaign training sessions, and terrific social events. We’ll also host a business meeting featuring elections for Caucus leadership for the next two years. The highlight of the weekend will be our Leadership Dinner with National Keynote Speaker Andrew Gillum and Legislative Keynote Speaker State Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith. Stars of the freshman class in Tallahassee State Reps. Jennifer Webb and Anna Eskamani will also address our dinner.
