Ritual Cafe - 13th Street in Des Moines
At One Iowa , we believe all families should have equal protections and responsibilities; the best way to achieve this is through marriage. As we continue our work toward Marriage Equality, one of our outreach goals, is our story telling project, this project is at the forefront and to kick off this effort, we have invited these women to share their stories, in hopes that others will find their voice and share their stories with us.
This month One Iowa has the honor to host Laura Fefchak and her partner Nancy Robinson at Ritual, these women have agreed to come and "share their story." Please come and hear their experiences of raising two children, having married in Canada and the everyday life experiences of being a lesbian couple in 2008 in Iowa . Their presentation will start at 5:30pm. After the main presentation we will have laptops available so others can start sharing their stories.
Ritual Cafe, located on 13th Street between Grand and Locust in downtown Des Moines, is an LGBT-operated coffee shop and cafe offering "really great coffee and food" in an open and affirming place.
For questions, please contact One Iowa at (515)288-4019, or you can visit our web site at www.oneiowa.org.
