The Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion is sponsoring a faith inclusion breakfast from 7:30-9 a.m on Aug. 19 at the Troy Mariott Hotel, located at 200 W. Big Beaver Road.
The morning features keynote speaker Jacob Reitan, a national leader in the LGBT movement. Reitan and his parents participated in the award-winning film documentary, “For the Bible Tells Me So,” is the founder of Soulforce Equality Ride, and developed the “Right to Serve Campaign,” which recruits and trains activists to challenge “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” at military recruitment centers. Based on the success of this program, Reitan was invited to the White House to be in the Oval Office as President Obama signed the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased at or by calling Kevin Hogan at 248-709-3703. Proceeds will benefit the LGBT Faith and Equality Initiative of the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion.
