Virginia Values Forum

September 26, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Under Virginia law, LGBT people are not explicitly protected from discrimination in their daily lives.

We want a brighter future for our LGBT friends, family members, coworkers, and neighbors – and we hope you do, too. Join us for the Virginia Values Forum on Thursday, September 26, 2019 to learn more about how we can create a Virginia that reflects our shared values of fairness, dignity, and respect.

This robust panel discussion will feature local advocates, faith leaders, and legal experts who will talk about the impact of having statewide non-discrimination protections in housing, employment, and public places for gay and transgender Virginians.

A networking social will run before the event from 6:00-6:30pm with the panel discussion starting promptly at 6:30pm and ending at 8:00pm. The panel will include ample time for Q&A.

If you are concerned that Virginians are fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, and turned away from places like restaurants, shops and even doctor’s offices because they’re LGBT, we hope you’ll join us on September 26th!

Help us expand our reach by inviting your friends, neighbors, family members, or coworkers to the Virginia Values Forum.

If you can’t attend in-person, you can still stream the forum from the comfort of your home. Via this link:  https://zoom.us/j/686399172
