An invitation to two very special events - one in Olympia and one in Seattle.

Sunday, February 10, 2-4:30 pm
PFLAG-Olympia

The Not-So-Straight Truth About Our Schools!
What's really going on in our schools for GLBTQ kids?

A candid conversation about the school environment for GLBTQ youth,
with local School District Representatives talking with us about diversity.

There is a small change in the format of our meeting for this event.

This meeting starts at 2:00 P.M. with introductions, announcements and social time, and the program will begin at 3:00 P.M.

We have a poster about this program, and I hope you can use it to help us get the word out.
It's online here. (pdf format)

PFLAG Olympia meets at First United Methodist Church
1224 Legion Way SE at Boundary Street in Olympia.
Use the church's main entrance facing 5th Avenue. It is handicap-accessible.
See this map for the location.
