LGBTQ Veterans’ Issues Listening Session with Rep Jayapal’s staff
SPECIAL EVENT: LGBTQ Veterans’ Issues Listening Session with Rep Jayapal’s staff
As part of our efforts to greater connect with all District 7 constituents, we would like to invite you to a listening session on LGBTQ veterans’ issues at Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal’s District Office with her staff. The Congresswoman’s office scheduled this session for September 27th, 2017 from 12-1pm at the District Office so that our staff can gain a greater insight into issues specifically affecting LGBTQ veterans. As a long-time defender of both LGBTQ and veterans’ rights, the Congresswoman is especially interested in hearing from members of this unique community on their current challenges regarding the systems with which they interact.
The main goals of this meeting will be to expand our understanding of LGTBQ veteran’s issues, facilitate a dialogue with Rep. Jayapal’s office and the LGBTQ veterans community, to increase an awareness of and identify issues affecting this constituency, and to create a safe space that can be used as a conduit to raise these issues in Congress. Also, we aim to make sure this community is aware of the different services our office provides, such as casework, and ensure these are available to constituents.
We at the District Office would so value your perspective at this meeting, and urge you to bring your questions, concerns, and ideas regarding these issues with you.
If you can attend this discussion, please RSVP with me directly. If you know of LGBTQ veterans who would be interested in a conversation like this one, please share this email with them.
