Today, there is a special meeting/presentation by Equality PA to host Obama appointee, Chai Feldblum.  Here are the details:

Friends: Over the past several months, Equality PA has had the pleasure and honor of developing a great working relationship with The White House. In that time, we’ve worked to bring Obama Administration appointees and thought-leaders into close contact with numerous members and allies of the state’s LGBT Community for conversation and learning.

On Tuesday, June 26 from 2-4pm, we’ll be holding another such session in Pittsburgh with one of the Obama Administration’s highest ranking openly gay appointees. The Honorable Chai Feldblum is dynamic, thoughtful, charismatic and a civil rights leader you’ll want to hear from. We know that the time is short, but we still hope you’ll find a way to attend this unique and intimate roundtable meeting with:

The Honorable Chai Feldblum
