RSVP on Facebook to join SDNYC next Wednesday for a discussion on “Supporting the Racial & Ethnic Diversity of NYC's LGBT Community” and invite your friends to participate this important conversation.
We hope to use this meeting as an opportunity to underscore the importance of ensuring discussions about the LGBT community include a diverse range of voices that speak to the full spectrum of unique and varied needs of LGBT New Yorkers as well as to discuss how organizations, and we as individuals, can support and amplify the work of those advocating for minority constituencies within NYC's broader LGBT community.
The following panel will lead this discussion:
- LaLa Zannell, Community Organizer, New York City Anti-Violence Project
- Bianey Garcia, Community Organizer, Make The Road New York
- Terrance Knox, Executive Board Member of Brooklyn Community Pride Center & Business Development Director at Vodafone America
- Moderated by: Juan Rosa, West Harlem Democratic District Leader, SDNYC Board Member and Government & Community Affairs Manager at Neighborhood Housing Services of New York Cit
In addition, attendees will be encouraged to engage in positive dialogue about coming together to support and recognize the importance of celebrating the racial and ethnic diversity of NYC's LGBT community.
