Equality House co-founder to speak tomorrow
Davis Hammet, director of operations for Planting Peace, a multifaceted international humanitarian organization, will speak at the third annual LGBT Leadership Conference at 3 p.m. Oct. 18 in the Town Hall at the Leadership Studies Building. Conference registration is free.
On March 19, Hammet, along with Planting Peace president Aaron Jackson, painted a house, now called the Equality House, the colors of the pride flag across from the infamous Westboro Baptist Church hate group.
With the launch of the Equality House, Planting Peace has begun work on domestic bully prevention and international human rights, as well as expanding programs in international relief, environmental protection and medical intervention.
