La Crosse’s Human Rights Commission focuses on barriers in LGBTQ community

A series of listening sessions is helping put an end to discrimination in La Crosse. 

La Crosse’s Human Rights Commission hosted its second community listening session Wednesday night. It focused on barriers in the LGBTQ community. 

Community members got to speak about their own experiences while finding a solution to the problem.

“The hope is over time that people in certain communities that may have felt they couldn’t speak openly about issues related to discrimination will be able to do that through other channels,” said the chairperson of the Human Rights Commission Fabio Burgos.

The commission is now going to assess what they learned from the first couple of sessions. After that, they will decide if more sessions are needed.
