Thank you to everyone who came out and joined the fun at the Fair Street USA Block Party exhibition! The exhibition/ art installation of houses is designed to inform and educate folx about the range of protections Fair Housing Laws provide against different types of discrimination. The LOFT LGBTQ+ Community Center was proud to represent the issues related to Sex and Gender. The exhibition has been moved inside White Plains Public Library and will be going on for the entire month of July. Go and see it, you will definitely learn things you didn't know!
