First Annual Division on Civil Rights GLBT Conference:
"Protecting Sexual Minorities from Discrimination in Employment, Housing & Public Accommodations"

A public forum focused on the rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. Entitled “Protecting Sexual Minorities from Discrimination in Employment, Housing and Public Accommodations,” the forum is the first of its kind ever sponsored by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, located within the Attorney General’s Office. The event is the product of a collaborative effort involving the State, as well as a variety of advocacy groups and non-profit agencies. The goal of the program is educational—to help share with attendees the legal protections afforded to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons under State law. The free conference will include a one-hour training session on the law, and then a 90-minute question-and-answer session with a panel of lawyers and GLBT community leaders.

Today, Tuesday, June 14, 2005, 6 p.m. to 10 pm (Registration 6 p.m. Actual program starts at 6:30 PM).

Trayes Hall in the Douglass Student Center, 100 George Street, on the Rutgers New Brunswick Campus.
