LGBT Regional Summit Hosted by the White House

Members of the LGBT community from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa gathered together in St. Louis on September 30th to discuss a variety of issues in a regional summit hosted by the White House and Department of Health and Human Services.

On hand for panel discussions were representatives of the SBA, USDA, Department of Justice, and Department of Education. Morning workshops included topics as varied as improving data collection for the LGBT community, to health disparities in the queer and trans communities of color, and the future of federal and state nondiscrimination protections. Afternoon workshops focused on health and aging in the LGBT community, the Affordable Care Act, and engaging and supporting LGBT youth. An afternoon panel also highlighted local leaders and community groups.

Equality Day 2015

Equality Day 2015

PROMO’s annual Equality Day at the Capitol in Jefferson City is Tuesday, February 17.

This year we want you to stand alongside your fellow activists to tell the Missouri Legislature “Show Me Fairness!” Every Missouri citizen should have the right to earn a living and contribute to their community without the fear of being discriminated against because of who they are. Treating others like you want to be treated is good for business, good for communities, and good for Missouri.

Please join us at the Capitol to share your stories and urge your elected officials to pass legislation that protects the LGBT community from employment, housing, and public accommodation discrimination and safeguards youth from the damaging effects of bullying. This is a unique opportunity to help us change hearts and help ensure Missouri is a fair and respectful place for all Missourians to live, work, and raise their families.

We feel that 2015 has the potential to #ShowMeFairness and we want to do it with you!

Transportation will be provided from Kansas City.

Meeting at 7:15 leaving at 7:30 a.m.
Meeting Place: The Uptown Theater parking lot. Located directly north of the Uptown on the NW corner of Broadway and Valentine.
