2014 Programming, 2nd Quarter
PFLAG isn’t just for support; it’s also for education & advocacy! At most of our monthly meetings, whether in Brewster or Falmouth, we devote at least part of the meeting to support, and the remainder to an educational or advocacy-related program.
Brewster Meeting, Monday April 21, 7pm
Short Film "Coming Out in the 1950's: Stories of Our Lives" produced by the Pye/Harris Project. Discussion and support will follow.
Falmouth Meeting, Tuesday, April 29, 7pm
Speaker: Diego Sanchez, PFLAG National Director of Policy will Speak about LGBT Equality Legislation and Policy, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth. Former Senior Policy Advisor to Congressman Barney Frank, Mr. Sanchez will talk about current and upcoming national and state legislation relating to equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens and residents.
As National Director of Policy for PFLAG, Diego ensures that PFLAG’s voice is heard regarding state and federal policy, legislation and litigation. This year, that includes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, LGBT concerns relating to the Affordable Care Act, clarification of federal tax benefits for same-sex married couples, challenges to same-sex marriage laws in many states, a challenge to the 2009 Hate Crimes Prevention Act, REPEAL HIV Discrimination Act, and two pieces of proposed legislation in Massachusetts: the Equal Access Bill and a bill to ban conversion therapy on minors.
