Beginning in August 2020, Building A Safer Evansville is hosting community-focused presentations to address LGBTQ+ topics for Evansville residents. The Virtual Spectrum Series will be offered to Evansville community members via Zoom as part of a “Dinner and Learn” where attendees will be given a free meal from Rock’n Rollz in Evansville! Please call the day of the event and give them the name you registered with, say you’re with BASE and select what sandwich, chips & drink you would like.
There will be a Q&A at the end of each presentation to keep discussion focused and provide community members the chance to address their concerns on these LGBTQ+ topics. If you would like to ask a question anonymously before the meeting you can submit them here: www.buildingasaferevansville.org/contact-us form
