ALEINU, the 20s & 30s group at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, hosts an in-depth look at the fight for civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people worldwide in a 2015 discussion series: Architects of the LGBTQ Movement. In this 6-part series we listen as our heroes, trailblazers, and advocates recount the genesis of the modern movement, and also deliver a challenge: for us to envision what LGBTQ identity and activism will mean in the future. We hope you will join us for this incredible opportunity to learn from the architects of the LGBTQ movement.

* LGBTQ Community Centers Movement: State, City, and Federal Advocacy with former and current Center Executive Directors Richard Burns and Glennda Testone, Thursday May 14, 6:30pm at The Center
* Legal Advocacy/Impact Litigation [Details coming soon]
