PFLAG Comes to Mississippi: September 24

PFLAG's communications coordinator, Adam Ratliff, and I will be traveling to the University of Mississippi on September 24 for a first-of-its-kind GLBT Town Hall Discussion ahead of the September 26 presidential debate in the state. We'll be on the ground, with spokespeople from groups like GLSEN, GLAAD, the Equality Federation, the National Black Justice Coalition and the ACLU, and taking part in a Wednesday evening panel discussion on important issues facing our community in November.

PFLAG's presentation will focus on critical ballot battles - in states like Florida, Arkansas, California, Arizona and Montgomery County, Maryland - facing our families in November. The September 24 event is being organized and hosted by the University's gay-straight alliance.

Check back here soon for more details on this important event. And if you're a PFLAG supporter in Mississippi, mark your calendars and plan to join us on September 24!
