LGBTQ Taskforce Launch for Brooklyn

Senator Jesse Hamilton and Councilmember Carlos Menchaca to Co-Chair New LGBTQ Advisory Board

First meeting will be this Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at 6:30pm at 1669 Bedford Avenue #2 in Brooklyn

The purpose of the advisory board will be to provide counsel, both on state and local issues in order to keep moving the LGBTQ agenda forward to create full equality and acceptance. 

This launch comes after 4 anti-LGBTQ hate crimes rocked Brooklyn, three in Crown Heights and one in Flatlands. The Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn will be a part of this task force. 

The anti-LGBTQ hate crimes demonstrate that we have more work to do to ensures no one faces harassment, intimidation, and outright violence because of who they are, who they love or where they live. 

The task force meeting is open to the public. We encourage you to join us.
