Celebrate Newtown's Love is Love Resolution with John Mack - Newtown Supervisor

Celebrate Newtown's Love is Love Resolution with John Mack - Newtown Supervisor | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Please REGISTER if you are interested in attending a Zoom meeting on Thursday, March 11, at 7:30 PM, to celebrate/commemorate the passage of Newtown Township's "Love is Love" Resolution in support of LGBTQ + minority youth on March 11, 2020 (read "Newtown Township Passes Revised Love is Love Resolution").

 

Although it took several tries and a modified version to get a resolution passed, I believe the process raised awareness and educated the public regarding the unique trials and tribulations of LGBTQ + minority youth.

 

The goal of this Zoom meeting is to continue to raise awareness and to plan for declaring a special day each year in Newtown Township as "LOVE is LOVE Day." Several activists and students (see below) have been invited to speak. Some will tell their personal stories of being bullied, harassed, and discriminated against because of their race and/or gender identity.

 

Invited Speakers include:

 

  • Marianne Alt - Kidsbridge Tolerance Center
  • Kevin L Antoine, JD - Chief Diversity Equity Inclusion Officer at Bucks County Community College 
  • Council Rock students
  • Karen Downer, President of the Bucks County NAACP
  • Kristin Mallon - sponsor of the Council Rock North School Gay Straight Alliance
  • Marlene Pray – founder and director of the Rainbow Room
  • Others TBD

 

REGISTER NOW!
