Our Fund Foundation Presents: ``For Better or Worse in Post-Roe in the U.S. A Vow to Protect LGBTQ+ Equality``

Prominent LGBTQ+ leaders will confront current challenges during two informative forums August 16 in Wilton Manors and August 17 in Miami.

Wilton Manors (August 9, 2022) – Following the recent Supreme Court Dobbs decision and the harsh rhetoric, increased hostility, and uncertainty that it has unleashed, many in the LGBTQ+ community have heightened concerns about the future of hard-fought rights and liberties.

To continue serving South Florida’s diverse LGBTQ’s community’s needs, Our Fund Foundation is presenting two free educational discussions entitled For Better or Worse in Post-Roe in the U.S. – A Vow to Protect LGBTQ+ Equality.

Attendance is open to members of the community who wish to hear from respected panelists presenting legal, financial, mental health, and spiritual insights into how they can protect themselves, build resiliency and find support and prepare for future challenges.

“Due to the Supreme Court’s recent decision, the LGBTQ+ community has learned a sad new fact of life. Our planning for the future must now take into consideration the possibility of losing our hard-fought current rights,” said David Jobin, CEO of Our Fund Foundation.

“With Dobbs, the majority has torn down the entire doctrine protecting marriage equality, gay rights and contraception, among other personal liberties, as the liberal justices wrote in dissent, these rights are ‘all part of the same constitutional fabric,’” said David Treece of the Treece Financial Group.

Treece added, “I knew that marriage equality would come under the gun next but many people are in denial about what can happen. They say things like, ‘Don’t worry it won’t happen’ but I contend that until there is something more concrete, it’s best to take action now to protect the legal rights and financial benefits accorded by your marriage.”
