Suspended CNN political analyst Roland S. Martin has tweeted that he looks "forward to meeting with GLAAD in the near future and having a productive dialogue."

Here's a statement by GLAAD:

CNN’s Roland Martin confirmed last night that he would meet with GLAAD.
 
Martin tweeted: I look forward to meeting with GLAAD in the near future and having a productive dialogue. (https://twitter.com/#!/rolandsmartin/status/167442513404231680).
GLAAD replied: .@rolandsmartin We look forward to a productive dialogue and to working together as well. (https://twitter.com/#!/glaad/status/167468507905261569)
 
Timing and participants will be determined. We'll keep you updated. Our goal is to ensure better coverage that works toward ending anti-LGBT violence. Yesterday, CNN spoke out against anti-LGBT violence and Martin reported on Brandon White, a 20 year-old victim of an anti-gay attack in Atlanta. Read more about glaad's work with the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Projects around this brutal crime here: http://www.glaad.org/blog/glaad-commends-brandon-white-telling-his-story.
 
This comes at a time when the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that violence against LGBT people was up 23%, and 70% were people of color.
