Queer Town Hall: Federal LGBTQ Updates
Tune in this Tuesday, July 21 at noon on YouTube Live (https://youtu.be/dE81VqxaaAQ) for our live-captioned Queer Town Hall. The past few months have been a whirlwind on the federal level. We celebrated major victories in LGBTQ employment protections at the Supreme Court while addressing unconscionable rollbacks of protections in trans healthcare and houseless shelters. Learn more and join the discussion about what happened and where the fight is headed on the national level.
Our panelists include:
-Kylar Broadus, attorney, long-time activist, public speaker, author and professor
-Ian Thompson, Senior Legislative Representative, American Civil Liberties Union
-Mat dos Santos, Director, Transgender Law Center
-Nora Broker, Attorney, Board Member & Legislative Policy Chair for OGALLA: the LGBT Bar Ass’n of Oregon.
