Social Justice Spring

 

Though the cherry blossoms have come and gone, spring 2015 continues to bring new life and new hope.  This new life is particularly visible on the social justice landscape. Within the month of April there have been major developments for several historically underrepresented communities. Demonstrations started in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray have become heated and have prompted similar demonstrations in communities across the country. Though not the first woman to run for president (that would be Victoria Woodhull), Hillary Clinton announced her bid for the oval office.  Just this week the highest court in the land started hearing arguments in what people believe will be a national ruling on same-sex marriage. That’s a lot going on in one month!

 

Most all Gay District folks live, work, and play in the DC metropolitan area and so it’s very likely that many (if not all) of us have been affected by these developments in a very close-to-home way. This Friday (May 1st 2015) let’s all come together and talk about everything that’s going on. Maybe you have friends or family or lovers living in Baltimore that you’re worried about.  Maybe you’ve been pounding the steps outside the Supreme Court and want to share a conversation you had with a protester. Maybe you’re not particularly a fan of Hillary but can appreciate the significance her campaign could represent to little girls who see her on TV. Whatever you feel, come join us at the DC LGBT Center Friday at 8:30pm  and let’s talk it out together. All opinions welcome.
