The Wisconsin Queer People of Color Conference (WQPOCC) is a space for queer communities of color and allies, particularly students, to come together to engage in meaningful dialogues focused on the intersections of identities of queer people of color (QPOC).

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in educational workshops, presentations, and caucuses that will provide them with tools to navigate societal and institutional barriers that queer people of color encounter on campus and in larger communities. We will explore the complexity and critical necessity of coalition building through intersectional and social justice lenses.
