Flights and Rights - LGBTQ+ Rights

Thursday, July 23, 2020 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
(This event was originally scheduled for June 30th but was postponed)

Flights & Rights is our regularly scheduled community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beer in the KEXP Studios Gathering Space. This month, we build community virtually, so grab your beverage of choice and meet us online or via phone.

Pride 2020 for the ACLU is about being resilient together. For this virtual event, advocates will speak on the implications of the landmark win at the Supreme Court, how to center Black trans people in the movement and the Trump administration’s removal of nondiscrimination protections when it comes to health care and health insurance.

Executive Director Michele Storms will moderate the conversation with a panel of community activists. Hear from Jaelynn Scott of Lavender Rights Project, Ebony Miranda of Black Lives Matter, Denise Diskin of QLaw Foundation, Elayne Wylie of Gender Justice League, and Leah Rutman of ACLU.

Get ready for the event by listening to some uniquely curated Pride 2020 jams by ACLU-WA staff and KEXP's The Weekly Mix podcast with DJ Riz and DJ El Toro.

Registration required.
