Equality Project Training Opportunity Focuses on LGBT Issues

The Texas Freedom Network Education Fund is proud to co-sponsor with Equality Texas Foundation a special Equality Project Training opportunity for Central Texas activists on June 16 in La Grange.

Equality Project is a public education and civic engagement program on policy issues related to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) citizens in Texas. The Project trains participants on how to establish relationships with their state representatives and senators and educate those lawmakers on issues important to the LGBT community.

The event will focus on issues such as employment nondiscrimination, family recognition, LGBT-parented families, hate crimes, bullying and harassment, gender marker changes and public accommodations.

This Equality Project training is geared to residents of the following counties: Fayette, Lavaca, Colorado, Austin, Washington, Burleson and Grimes.
