LGBT Press Teleconference on Gainesville's Fight to Protect LGBT Floridians

WASHINGTON - What: Equality is Gainesville's Business and Equality Florida will co-host a teleconference with LGBT Press to discuss the local effort to stop the far right's attempt to repeal existing nondiscrimination protections.

The nation is watching to see if the far right will succeed in repealing Gainesville's Human Rights protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. This is a must win battle in one of the most progressive cities in the state.

The far right picked Gainesville to send a message that they will target LGBT legal rights anywhere. Join us for a Statewide Conference call and get the inside story from the local team.

When: Friday, February 20th at 3PM (EST)

Where: Teleconference information:

Dial-in Number: 1-218-486-8700

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
