We hope you can join us on Tuesday, December 7, at the Houston premiere of the Southern Poverty Law’s Center’s BULLIED: A Student, a School, and a Case That Made History. The documentary tells the story of Jamie Nabozny, who decided to take a stand – against the bullying he endured and the bullying he knew other students were enduring. He went to court and fought for everyone’s right to be safe at school, even if you are gay.
Following the film, Youth Services Specialist Deb Murphy, who runs our youth group HATCH, will lead a community discussion about what we can do to stop the mistreatment of our communities’ youth. The brainstorming session will be the first step to identifying a concrete action plan to stop GLBT bullying.
We need your input! Please plan to attend and help us spread the word about this important event.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m, with the documentary at 7 p.m., and community organizing at 7:45 p.m. The event will be held in the GLBT Cultural Center on the 1st floor of MCC at 401 Branard. Community Partners include Montrose Counseling Center/HATCH, Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League, Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, and Equality Texas.
