We are pleased to announce that Caroline Duble, community organizer with the Houston American Civil Liberties Union will be our guest speaker on Sunday, August 13, 2017. In the United States, LGBTQ students are not specifically protected from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. As a result, they often must deal with bullying and verbal harassment, sometimes resulting in physical attacks. Caroline will discuss how LGBTQ students can more effectively assert their individual rights to promote a safe and respectful school environment. Our meeting will begin at 2:00 pm in the Jones Building at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 5501 Main St. Parking is available between Fannin and San Jacinto. Small groups, where members and visitors can confidentially share their individual journeys will immediately follow our program. We have a small group dedicated to transgender issues, as well as a group for Spanish speakers.
