Employment, Housing, and Health: The State of LGBTQ Marylanders
5/28/2015, 12:00 - 1:30 PM
A survey of transgendered Marylanders revealed alarming rates of workplace discrimination and blatant housing discrimination, as well as housing instability, much of which appears to stem from employment challenges. As many as 40% homeless youth self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Join us to discuss recent legislation,effects of discrimination, and support systems in place.
On May 19, 2015 ABAG held a wonderful Annual Meeting in celebration of our collaboration and collective impact. It was great to see so many ABAG Members, partners and friends at the Walters Art Museum as we welcomed new Board Chair Cathy Brill of the Leonard and Helen R. Stulman Foundation, welcomed new board members and officers, presented our new strategic plan with the help of ABAG members, and heard about the "Art of Placemaking” from Keynote Jamie Bennett, ED of ArtPlace America. #ABAGAM15
