Presenting a Free Legal Issues Forum at PERSAD CENTER

Rights and Responsibilities: Legal Issues for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community

PERSAD CENTER is pleased to present a free legal issues forum on Thursday, June 25, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at our new home in Lawrenceville. 


Discover up-to-date information about crime, hate crime and LGBTQ discrimination, as PERSAD CENTER'S Community Safe Zone coordinator Ted Hoover leads an examination of local, state and federal laws afffecting the LGBTQ community.

As the legal landscape changes it's important to know what the law does and doesn't say, and how we can all work with law enforcement and government agencies to create a safe and equitable community for Western PA citizens.

The event is free and all are welcome. Join us on Thursday, June 25 at 6:30 p.m.
