Sawant's Town Hall Meeting: End Hate Crime Against LGBTQ People!
Council member Kshama Sawant wants to address the continuing pattern of hate crime committed against members of the LGBTQ community in Capitol Hill. As Crosscut and other outlets reported last year, hate crime has been on the rise as of late, a concerning fact given Capitol Hill's status as a LGBTQ cultural hub within the city.
The town hall discussion will include testimony from individuals directly effected by such instances, as well as public safety representatives, activists, and housing justice advocates.
End Hate Crime Against LGBTQ People! Tue, Mar 3, 7:00pm, All Pilgrims Christian Church, 500 Broadway E, Free
