EQUITY & INCLUSION CONVERSATION SERIES
Please join us for the next conversation in our continuing Equity and Inclusion Conversation Series, this one focused on LGBTQ issues.
Hosted by Betsy Allen, Manager of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for the City of Somerville, Department of Health and Human Services

Since the conclusion of this extraordinary election season, we’ve heard from a number of residents in our LGBTQ community of the widespread fear, concern and, attimes, intimidation that they are experiencing. This event is intended to raise awareness of the issues, to outline support services, to discuss strategies for moving forward and, even more importantly, in these times of uncertainty, to continue foster a sense of unity and solidarity with every resident in the City of Somerville.
Together We Stand Always!
City Hall Aldermanic Chamber
The Public Is Welcome.
