Anderson, Interim Executive Director for the Public Interest Directorate and Director of the APA Office on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity.  If you would like to attend, please RSVP.
Speakers will focus on three main areas by first reviewing the current political landscape, including supportive and discriminatory bills and actions emanating from Executive Branch Agencies,with a focus on civil rights and data collection. They will then explain psychological and public health evidence on the harmful physical and mental health effects of discriminatory policies and the protective effects of supportive policies. And finally, they will suggest specific policy recommendations to limit stigma and benefit the health of sexual and gender minorities.
