Please join members of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund and a host of other organizations and elected officials at a first-of-its-kind town hall meeting with officials from the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to discuss HUD's ground-breaking national study of housing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and families in the rental and sales markets.
This first meeting is being held at the end of the month in New York City with additional town hall meetings already planned for the near future in San Francisco and Chicago.
The purpose of the meeting this Friday, February 26th will be to discuss the nature of HUD's study and to receive comments from interested groups and individuals. It is essential that members of the transgender [ed. note. as well as the members of the bisexual, fluid, pansexual and queer-identified] community attend to provide input into this important process. We hope to see you on Friday.
