Equality Arizona Tele Town Hall



    “How did you react to the video of Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski’s negative comments about the LGBTQ community? Are you satisfied with his apology? What action do you believe should be taken? 

    Earlier this month, Equality Arizona, along with allied organizations and members of the LGBTQ community, called on the councilman to resign— he outright refused.

    Equality Arizona believes in a diverse, inclusive community— a protected environment for all, including our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. We believe a diverse community is a strong community in every sense of the word. We strive to create a safe place for all people, voices and opinions. 

    We want to know what YOU think about the issue at hand. 

    Join us via phone on March 31 at 6 p.m. for a tele town hall meeting to tell us what you think and discuss how we, as a community, should move forward. Participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask questions in a moderated setting.
