Love Wins in Brookings

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The City of Brookings is honored to have the Human Rights Campaign Foundation present Brookings’ 2018 Municipal Equality Index Score at McCrory Gardens Education & Visitor Center on Wednesday, October 10, and the public is welcome to join this monumental occasion. The Program will be at 4:30 pm and the Celebration Reception will follow with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is only highlighting three cities in their national announcement, and Brookings is lucky to be one of them. The 2018 Municipal Equality Index (MEI) score is a critical measure of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) inclusivity from the Human Rights Campaign, which is the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization. Speaking will be the Mayor and staff from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Washington DC Office, Brookings Human Rights Commission, the Brookings LGBTQ community and Equality South Dakota.
