(CLARKSVILLE, TN) – The newly formed Clarksville Q Board invites members of the LGBTQIA+ community to a town hall on Friday October 13th to discuss needs for support and programming in Clarksville. During the town hall board members will unveil plans for $80,000 in potential grant disbursements that will go towards supporting the queer community in the Clarksville area in partnership with the Healing Trust. Members of the community and allies are invited to participate and share thoughts on needs and potential uses of grant funding.
Clarksville Q is a board of LGBT+ and allied Clarksvillians. The group is holding a town hall series to discuss the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and other sexual and gender minority communities. On the board are: Board Chair Charles Uffelman, Commissioner David Shelton, Elizabeth Cannan-Knight, Lex Kaskey, Kelly Loy, Dr. Rod Mills, Dr. Mitchell Toomey, and Michelle Wilson.
WHAT: Clarksville Q LGBT+ Townhall
Details: Friday October 13th at 6:00 PM at the William O. Beach Civic Hall
“Clarksville is a diverse city, but many of us feel isolated and outnumbered,” said Clarksville Q Chair, Charles Uffelman. He added, “We hope that by having town halls and investing grant dollars in programs that bring us together and deliver needed services we can make everyone feel safe and at home here.”
Attendees will receive information on how to apply for up to $80,000 in grant donations in the programming areas of community building, advocacy, education, health, and support. There will be an opportunity for participants to suggest and crowdsource ideas on how to better serve the LGBT+ Community.
