Merski hosting Pride Month virtual town hall on June 27

Will highlight issues affecting LGBTQIA+ residents

ERIE, June 20 – In honor of Pride Month, state Rep. Bob Merski, D-Erie, is hosting a virtual town hall at 7 p.m. Monday, June 27 to discuss topics of importance to LGBTQIA+ people in Erie.

“June is Pride Month, and while it is important to celebrate the achievements and contributions of LGBTQIA+ people, it’s equally important to continue talking about the concerns, biases and issues many people still face,” Merski said. “Our virtual town hall will be a forum for folks to discuss issues that can impact opportunity and quality of life for LGBTQIA+ residents. Those are issues for our entire Erie community to address, but an open dialog is the first step. I encourage everyone to sign on and be part of that dialog.”

Those interested in attending the live online Teams event should send their name and email address to Merski’s office by emailing or calling (814) 455-6319.

The event will also be livestreamed on Merski’s Facebook page – @RepMerski.
