Williams Institute: Report and Events


A new report and data interactive by policy analyst Angeliki Kastanis breaks down regional differences in the socioeconomic well-being of LGBT people in California.

In the Central/Southern Farm region of California (Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Stanislaus, Tulare counties), LGBT people have a lower college completion rate than in the Southern and Midwestern regions of the United States.

In the North and Mountain regions of California, the proportion of LGBT people earning less than $24,000 per year is similar to the rate in the Southern and Midwestern regions of the United States.

READ THE REPORT

We’d like to see you this spring.

The next few months are full of quality educational and fundraising events at the Williams Institute. Save the dates for our upcoming events as we celebrate our 15th anniversary.

In February, we have a symposium at UCLA on the ways the phrase “coming out” has been used by various marginalized groups, our annual Winter Salon in Washington, D.C., a talk with M.V. Lee Badgett on her new book The Public Professor: How to Use your Research to Change the World, and our 12th Annual Moot Court Competition.
