Alaskans Together annual meeting on Oct 11, scholarships available

Alaskans Together for Equality, Inc. (ATE) is happy to announce its 1st Annual Meeting, to be held at the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Anchorage on Sunday October 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

We will be engaged in important strategic planning to determine the future direction of Alaska's only statewide civil rights group focused on promoting the rights of Alaska's LGBTQ population. This is an open meeting and all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Lunch will be held on site.

In order to help people from outside of the Anchorage area to be able to participate in the meeting, we are providing a limited number of scholarships to help defray travel expenses. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please send an email containing your name, contact information, and a brief statement on why you would like to attend the meeting to Joseph Lapp.

ATE will also be making a presentation at the Anchorage Pride Conference on Saturday October 10, and we will be hosting a social and fundraiser after the Conference from 5-7:30 p.m.

A group of Alaskans are marching together in the national march, but I haven't heard about a local rally. Many of us will be at the Pride Conference. If you 'hear' more about this, please send the details!
