Use of the Grange for the Human Rights Event

While our event clearly states that it is an educational platform to learn more about the Transgender community and the religion of Islam, there have been questions raised about whether or not this type of event is allowed on town property.

Connecticut’s Office of Legislative Research released this article entitled, USE OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS FOR RELIGIOUS PURPOSES” (click to be taken directly to the article)  exploring whether public buildings can be used for religious purposes (or in our case, used to do an informative presentation about Islam).

This article clearly states that our educational activities are clearly in-line with the law and that we have precedent to use the Grange Hall for our Human Rights Day event.
