LGBT community urged to pack chambers for DART's vote Tuesday on LGBT protections

Resource Center Dallas has set up a Facebook page and is encouraging people to attend Tuesday’s DART Board of Directors meeting, where the board is scheduled to vote for the final time on a new nondiscrimination policy which, as currently written, wouldn’t protect LGBT employees.

Rafael McDonnell, a spokesman for RCD, said those who attend the meeting shouldn’t feel compelled to speak during the public comment period.

“We need the bodies in the seats, because opponents of the community I’m sure will have folks there,” he said. “We need people at the meeting ready to fill those seats and be there to show who we are. That’s incredibly important. We want to pack the chamber, and that’s what we have to do in this case.”

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 22 at DART headquarters, 1401 Pacific Ave. You may want to arrive early to find parking and because you’ll have to go through security to get into the board room. On-street parking is free after 6 p.m.
