Join us here on Thursday, December 3 at 2pm ET for the White House LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Summit Demo. In August of this year, the White House hosted the second annual LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Summit, which brought together over 170 LGBTQ-identified coders, designers, and tech community organizers from across the country to address some of the nation’s toughest challenges using technology solutions. Since the Summit, teams have been working on issues around criminal justice reform, transgender inclusivity, climate, and employment diversity, and on Thursday will present what innovative solutions they’ve created.

The live discussion will be moderated by Megan Smith, the U.S. Chief Technology Officer. Special guests will include:

It's an important day in American history (or, at least, in American cinematic history): It's the date to which Marty McFly traveled into the "future" in Back to the Future Part II.

We've come a long way in the 30 years that have passed since the original Back to the Future came out. Now, we're going to talk about where we're going in the next 30. 

All day long, we're hosting a series of conversations with scientists and innovators across the government and the country. You'll be able to ask them questions, watch videos explaining their cutting-edge developments, and share your answer to the question above: What does 2045 look like?

###

At 9:30am ET, we're holding a  Google+ Hangout on time travel featuring:
-OSTP Deputy Director for Technology and Innovation Tom Kalil
-Professor Tim Ralph of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia
-Mr. Martin Ringbauer, a PhD student at the University of Queensland

"That's the promise of tomorrow—that in the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it. That when millions of Americans of every race and every region, every faith and every station, can join together in a spirit of brotherhood, then those mountains will be made low, and those rough places will be made plain, and those crooked places, they straighten out towards grace, and we will vindicate the faith of those who sacrificed so much and live up to the true meaning of our creed, as one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  —President Obama two years ago today celebrating a half-century since the March on Washington. To mark the 52nd anniversary, read the President's remarks on a half-century of progress on civil rights and the work still ahead: http://go.wh.gov/3yqEvS
