This year’s UN LGBTI Core Group Special Virtual IDAHOT Event will focus on “Building Back Better: Paving the way towards an inclusive and diverse post-pandemic world.” 
In order to heal from the economic, social, and public health dire impact the pandemic has had and still has, every plan of recovery must take into account a human-rights based, intersectional and gender responsive approach that addresses the specific needs of LGBTI persons in order not to leave them further behind. This event will feature examples of grassroots organizing on the ground in pandemic relief as well as government and UN officials discussing their work to date in inclusive recovery response.
It will take place on Monday 17 May at 8:30AM EDT. If you are able to join us please RSVP here.
This event will provide Spanish/English translation
