HAVERTOWN, PA — Havertown-area Community Action Network (H-CAN)’s Queer and Allies Action Group is hosting a free-to-attend discussion featuring two leading local LGBTQ+ advocates, the “first of many Diversity Dialogues designed to explore how LGBTQ issues impact our community and our world”. Limited childcare will be provided; please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
The event, LGBTQ 101: What’s the Fuss? What do I Need to Know?, is aimed at educators, parents, and community members who seek guidance on things like pronouns, community LGBTQ+ resources, and more. It takes place in Haverford Township Free Library‘s Community Room on Sunday, April 2rd, 2017 from 2:00PM-3:30PM.
The conversation will be guided by Joanne Glusman, president of Main Line Youth Alliance (an LGBTQ+ initiative that connects main line youth to vital resources), and Aiden James Kosciesza, a transgender speaker, writer, and activist.
Havertown-area Community Action Network was founded the day after Trump’s election by a coalition of concerned parents and residents, many of which “have never been politically active before” and are “learning as we go”, who wanted to take real steps to protect those in their community.
H-CAN’s core missions center around several ‘Action Groups’ designed to give voice to the diverse needs of the community at large. The network hosts the following subgroups:
Disability and Accessibility
Queer and Allies (LGBTQ)
H-CAN encourages members to inhabit multiple action groups that intersect with their identities and interests, and “to follow your passion and take a leadership role on any issue.” Visit the H-CAN webform to join.
