Town hall on Prop 8, race Wed.

A coalition of groups will hold a community forum, “Proposition 8 and Race: What’s Next?” on Wednesday, November 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street in San Francisco.

The Stop AIDS Project, And Castro for All, And Marriage for All, and the Bayard Rustin LGBT Coalition are hosting the forum. Those expected to speak include Supervisor Bevan Dufty, the Reverend Amos Brown, Andrea Shorter, and Eva Paterson. The facilitator will be Kyriell Noon, executive director of Stop AIDS.

Topics to be addressed include: how better bridges can be built between the LGBT community and communities of color; how LGBT people of all races can work with straight people to better communicate their relationships; and what individuals can do to further unity in their communities.

The forum is being held in an effort to move community discussions and strategy forward as LGBT people and allies continue to protest the passage of Prop 8.
