Event Description

May 9, 2013 Updated May 9, 2013 at 10:07 AM EST

The head of a group working to achieve marriage equality in Indiana by fostering respectful conversations among Hoosiers will speak at the YWCA Northeast Indiana on May 22 at noon.

Jean Capler, president of Fair Talk, a Bloomington-based grassroots group, will speak as part of the YWCA’s Diversity Dialogue series. Fair Talk’s current focus is working to defeat the proposed House Joint Resolution 6, which states: "Only marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Indiana. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized."

Jean will discuss some of the rights denied to same gender couples, then open it up for discussion.

The Dialogue will take place on Wednesday, May 22, from noon to 1:30 pm at YWCA Northeast Indiana’s 1610 Spy Run Avenue office. This and all Diversity Dialogues are free and open to the public. Free parking is available. To join us, please RSVP on our YWCA Northeast Indiana Facebook page, or contact Administrative Coordinator Sue Hiatt at SHiatt@ywcaerew.org or (260) 424-4908 ext.254.
