As Maurice Tomlinson puts it, the law is no silver bullet. However, where there is discriminatory legislation, visibility campaigns done by any minority group are at risk. It is not a secret that contact and conversation are the best ways to eradicate xenophobia, but without legislation providing a means of legal recourse, advocates are at risk. DyNAMC speaks with International renowned LGBTI Activist Maurice Tomlinson as to why changed legislation is necessary.

Daryl Davis does tremendous work across this nation that most or all of us would be too fearful to undertake.  But Daryl says “I Aint Never Scared”.  He has been featured in movies TV shows and has a long history as a musician playing with legendary greats to include Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Percy Sledge.  What we discuss today is his activist work as it relates to diversity.  Often we exclude those who think, look and act different than we do on the basis that they have nothing to offer us. It is an unfortunate fact, that no change can take place without dialogue. Daryl Davis explains why inviting conversations and recognizing the diverse views in our society is the only way forward to building a stronger nation.
