Boston Prideâ€™s Human Rights & Education Committee announces final stop on its statewide tour
Reaching out to the Greater Boston area on May 16Â
Â Boston, Mass. â€“ April 20, 2012 â€“ The Human Rights and Education (HR&E) Committee of Boston Pride will hold the final stop on its 2011 – 2012 Community Forum Road Tour on Wednesday, May 16th. The committee will continue its outreach in an effort to talk with members of the LGBT Community to gather data on how Boston Pride can best serve its constituents.Â The event begins at 7:00pm at the Non Profit Center, 89 South Street in Boston, Mass., and is free and open to the public.
The HR&E Committee is the arm of the Boston Pride organization that advocates for social justice for the LGBT community by disseminating news, promoting dialogue, and mobilizing people to take action on issues of local, national and global significance.
â€œWe have heard from our communities from the Northern, Western, and Southern parts of Mass., and now we plan to park our tour back in Boston.Â I am appreciative of the support and constructive feedback that we have received thus far.Â The success of our community forums have been sending a resounding message that Pride continues to be the major platform for community visibility and expression, and that we should keep working to promote human rights and education, in our community and beyond,â€ says Michael Bookman, Co-Chair of the HR&E Committee.
â€œBoston Pride relies heavily on the community feedback we gather, and we need to continue to meet the needs of our diverse community,â€ states Jeff Gerstenblatt, Co-Chair of the HR&E Committee.
