Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, recently delivered a keynote address at the Human Rights Campaign's inaugural Time to THRIVE Conference in Las Vegas.
ACA was a co-presenting partner of the Conference, which promoted safety, inclusion, and the well-being of LGBTQ youth by engaging a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff (Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs, scout leaders, etc.).

In her speech, Clinton gave special recognition to school counselors, and specifically, the American Counseling Association.
