NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.

The walking-tour will introduce the place and the people who have been part of Stonewall’s history. The audience will examine what makes a place significant from the perspective of cultural history, and be provided an in-depth look into the national monument.
The Stonewall National Monument in New York City was designated as an historic and notable American symbol for LGBTQ equality in June 2016. This session discusses the history and issues with this designation process and its relevance to other sites and communities across the U.S.
