The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
An LBGTQ+ Town Hall Meeting is coming up on November 10th at Maryville College through an event partnership with Appalachian OUTreach, Maryville College Pride Club and the FBI.
The event is titled “Defining Hate Crimes” and is free and open to the public.
The event notice states that Allies, parents, friends, and non-LGBTQ+ people are welcome to attend and that the content will be presented by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
“Learn how hate crimes are legally defined, learn how to report hate crimes, and get answers,” the flyer for the event states.
One conservative Blount County resident states, “This is creepy. Is dissent being criminalized? Joe Biden’s DOJ and the FBI do not inspire confidence.”
The former Blount County Republican Women’s Club President, Heather Fair, tells us that she is working to get a group of Conservative Christians to attend the meeting.
Appalachian OUTreach states, “The purpose of this LGBTQ+ Town Hall meeting is to educate vulnerable and marginalized populations about their rights and the laws that protect them.”
