Come see us at our next meeting on February 26th, 2019

Our meeting begins at 7:00pm with announcements and introductions. We will have group sharing and discussions until 8:00pm. Depending on the size of the group, we may have one group discussion, or break into smaller groups. Michelle Fox-Phillips will be available to lead a separate Transgender Support Group during our group sharing from 7:00 – 8:00pm, if needed.

After our support session, we break for refreshments before our speaker comes in. Our guest speaker is Jay Kaplan, LGBT Project Attorney with Michigan ACLU.

Jay Kaplan

Jay Kaplan has been the staff attorney for the ACLU of Michigan’s LGBT Project since its founding in 2001. He has worked on cases including challenging undercover sting operations targeting gay men, fighting Michigan’s constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying, defending the validity of second parent adoptions granted in Michigan, and recently advocating for a transgender high school student to be able to run for prom court. Jay was honored with the 2006 Unsung Hero Award from the Michigan State Bar and the 2010 Virginia Uribe Civil Rights Award from the National Education Association (NEA).

We hope you can join us for this celebration with the PFLAG family! :)
