Voting in any election is an important display of civic duty, but in regard to LGBTQ equality, the upcoming presidential election in November could have farther-reaching consequences than most. To help educate voters on the importance of making their voices heard, LGBT Detroit will be hosting its PRIDE Decides 2020: OUT and Voting event alongside SAGE Metro Detroit, LGBT Detroit Mobilization, United Precinct Delegates and For Michigan’s Future on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.
“Each organization will provide education on the ways in which citizens can vote in the upcoming election. We will conclude this program with special guest, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist,” said Jerron Totten, PRIDE Decides Field Director.
Between The Lines will be doing its part to educate voters, too, with Co-Publisher Jan Stevenson serving as a moderator for the free event.
