Learn about Bills Supported by Equality NY in the NYS Legislature Impacting LGBTQIA Rights

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Riverside’s Maranatha Ministry hosts a presentation about two bill measures protecting LGBTQIA family rights and freedom from discrimination in schools, as a part of the Polls Need Souls program series. Focused popular support for these measures will give them much needed traction within the NYS legislature.  

Longtime Riversider, Founder Emeritus of LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent, and community developer Dr. Wilhelmina Perry and Equality NY board member and labor organizer Desma Holcomb will discuss the bills  and answer questions. To learn more about Dr. Perry and Desma Holcomb, please go here

There will be an opportunity to write postcards to local politicians in support of the bills.
