Broward College Village Square will host the first Take Out Tuesday event of its 2016-2017 Village Square series of nonpartisan debates featuring guest speakers discussing their views on various issues facing the community. This debate will focus on the topic “My Big Fat Gay Marriage: Finding a Middle Ground with Religious Conservatives.”
The goal of Take Out Tuesday events is to hold public forums to better educate the public on divisive issues. This discussion will be a spirited, but fact-based, civil debate about bridging the gap between religious conservatives and the LGBTQ community in South Florida.
The debate will be moderated by Howard Simon, executive director at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida. The ACLU of Florida works to keep the spirit of the Bill of Rights alive and protect those individual rights most people take for granted.
Panelists include: Nadine Smith, Dr. Abdul Hamid Samra, and Rabbi Edwin Farber.
The event is free to attend, and guests are encouraged to bring their own take-out dinners. Space is limited, so advanced registration is encouraged. Official partners of the Village Square are the Broward League of Cities and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance. For more information and to RSVP please visit broward.edu/community/village-square.
