The Campaign for Southern Equality is hosting a free legal workshop titled, “What Amendment One Means for You and Your Family,” in Asheville on Wednesday, July 11 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. The purpose of the workshop is to provide clear, accessible information to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals regarding their legal rights now that Amendment One has gone into effect. Led by volunteer attorneys, it is designed for LGBT folks, couples and families with kids.
The workshop will be led by Asheville-based attorneys Meghann Burke and Diane Walton and will take place at the First Congregational United Church of Christ at 20 Oak Street in Asheville. Free childcare will be provided during the event. Here’s the Facebook invitation!
