The Port Grill will be hosting a fundraiser for PACEY (PACE’s social support group for LGBTQA high school to college age individuals) on Monday (18 February 2019) from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
More details about this fund-raiser can be found here (Facebook event link).
PACE (People Acting for Change and Equality) is a nonpartisan organization that works to advance equality in Northwest Louisiana so that the ￼lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community can lead open, honest, responsible, and safe ￼lives at home and in the workplace.
PACEY provides a safe and affirming environment for peer-to-peer social interaction and support for LGBTQA youth and young adults in our community.
This information comes from Adrienne Critcher (PACE):
Dr. James Jones of Ashford University (a friend of Tanisha Washington’s) is researching the rate at which lesbian, bisexual, and gay citizens are victims of physical assaults. You can help by answering his 5 question survey and sharing the survey with anyone else that you know who is gay, lesbian, or bisexual.
Identities will be kept confidential!

This information comes to us from the National PFLAG organization:
Early next month, PFLAG National–as a member of the ENDA Coalition and supporter of the Americans for Workplace Opportunity (AWO) ENDA Campaign–will begin a special, targeted effort to bring an inclusive ENDA to the House floor for a vote.
PFLAG National’s Lobby Day was the last organizational advocacy effort before the historic, successful Senate vote in 2013; we know that PFLAGers’ unique family voices made a difference. We still have time in the 113th Congress to move ENDA forward, and we’ll be working for its passage this year. No one sends the family message as effectively as PFLAGers, so be ready to take action as this effort gets underway.
Learn more about ENDA–as well as PFLAG’s other workplace equality efforts–at pflag.org/workplacefairness.
