Town Hall Forum to be Held at the University
May 14, 2009 -
Faith, Race and Human Rights is the topic of an upcoming town hall forum designed to continue cultivating a sense of unity at the University of Redlands and in the overall community.
The forum will be held Friday, May 15 at 6 p.m. in University Hall at the University of Redlands. The event, which is sponsored in part by the Office for Campus Diversity and Inclusion, is free and open to the public.
The event will start with networking among representatives of various gay-oriented organizations, including several that are faith-based. Organization representatives will have an opportunity to share information on their groups’ activities and efforts. The event will conclude with a question-and-answer session with a group of panelists with an interest in gay rights, religion and related topics.
Equality California Executive Director Geoff Kors also will present a lecture. Equality California advocates for the rights of individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Following the lecture, a group of guest panelists will answer questions from the audience.
Kors is a graduate of Stanford Law School. Before taking the helm of Equality California, he was a partner in a California civil rights firm. In that role, he originated and orchestrated passage of San Francisco’s Equal Benefits Ordinance.
