The Arcus Foundation and IFTF Team up for #My2024

The Arcus Foundation and the Institute for the Future (IFTF) are teaming up to create My2024, a national conversation and 10-day event that links LGBT communities across the country. Together, LGBT people will express visions regarding our futures as individuals and as a community, creating a world where everyone can live the life they love.

Starting October 7, there will be a 48-hour online event where you can share your stories and ideas for the future by adding to the My2024 Declaration, a call to action that will help shape the LGBT movement for the next decade. From October 9-15, you can spread those stories with the world. Make a video, take a photo, do something creative, then post it on social media using the hashtag #My2024. On October 16, celebrate the My2024 Declaration by sharing it with your friends and your community.
