At 6 p.m. June 18, Michigan LGBT African-American organization Kick is planning to continue their Learn and Live series, a free educational program targeted to the LGBT community. This session will be the second in the quarterly series of events.
The event will be held at the Historic Boston Edison District at 670 W. Boston Blvd. in Detroit. The discussion will focus on the legislative process and LGBT rights, educating participants on how to become more involved and learn about LGBT-specific laws and policies. The discussion will answer such questions as “What’s become of the proposed domestic partnership benefits in light of the passage of Proposition 2?,” “How does the political process affect the rights of LGBTs?” and “How can I get involved in the city or state’s future?”
The speaker for the evening will be Detroit City Councilwoman Alberta Tinsley-Talabi. Tinsley-Talabi has served on the city of Detroit council for nearly 16 years, and is a known friend to the LGBT community. She will address the aforementioned issues and others in an intimate, face-to-face session.
Attendance is free, but seating is limited to 50 participants.
