Stand with us to raise visibility of the LGBT community October 10 - 11 at the National Equality March in Washington, D.C.
Equality Across America has organized thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans and our allies to stand together and let our elected leaders know that now is the time for full equal rights for LGBT people.
GLAAD will join Equality Across America on October 10 & 11 at the National Equality March in Washington, D.C. in an effort to raise awareness about LGBT equality.
Are You Marching? Attend a free GLAAD Media Training in D.C.
During the National Equality March, GLAAD will conduct free media training workshops to assist an array of community activists and organizers with developing media outreach campaigns and sharing personal stories with national media outlets.
GLAAD will also share best practices for leveraging social media tools like Facebook and Twitter to communicate with and engage local community members.
During the training, American University Washington College of Law’s Lambda Law Society and Georgetown University Law Center’s Outlaw student organization will co-facilitate a brief overview on “Your Legal Right to Demonstrate.” This presentation will look at the development of the law guaranteeing people the right to demonstrate and focus on the utilization of this right by the LGBT community.
