This group's next meeting is listed on the Calendar page, and will be held on Zoom. If you would like to attend, write to Ellen at the email above, and she will send you an invitation to the virtual meeting.

The 50-Ways Rockbridge LGBTQIA+/Women’s Rights Issues Group researches, educates about and acts on civil rights issues surrounding gender identity, sexualities, and women’s rights.  To date, the group has worked on a new non-discrimination statement for our area schools, a local resolution to encourage our state to ratify the ERA Amendment, reproductive rights advocacy, and collaboration with local organizations for LGBTQ visibility and rights.

Welcome Pride Month!

On Thursday, Oct. 8 at 7:00 p.m., Professor Julie Youngman and Professor Melina Bell will lead a discussion about On the Basis of Sex, a docudrama depicting the life and work of beloved U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a hero to so many of us.
