Protest Against Anti-Lesbian Bias

Long-time gay community member Vernita Gray was illegally evicted from her condominium association by a president who decided she didn't like Gray's "type". Show your solidarity and send a clear message that anti-Lesbian housing bias will not be tolerated.
Defend Vernita Gray! Protest Anti-Lesbian Bias!

Many CABN members no doubt have read the front page news in this past week's LGBT press: long-time community member Vernita Gray was illegally evicted from her condominium by a condo association president who decided she didn't like Gray's "type." Other comments made by the condo president made it clear the "type" she didn't like had a lot to do with the fact that Gray is a Lesbian.

As a result of the eviction, Gray lost almost all her possessions, including dozens of years of photographs and other keepsakes. We encourage all who support justice to attend a rally at 11:30 a.m. this Saturday to show your solidarity and send a clear message that anti-Lesbian housing bias will not be tolerated.

The rally will convene at Arthur Ashe Park, 7400 South Shore Drive, at 11:30 a.m. Driving directions from the Loop and North Side are as follows: drive south on Lake Shore Drive to its end (approx. 6500 S.). Then bear left, towards the lake, following the signs for South Shore Drive and go to the address. We will walk to the front of Vernita's building, where we will begin the speak-out and short program.

Reminder: Next CABN Meeting!
