Hi from Petrese
It was so nice to find this site and know that there is a group such as this fighting for basic human rights in a peaceful way. I am on the board of directors for my home states Human Rights Coalition and have worked to promote equality for the GLBT community for several years. The driving force to become involved for me came after being brutally discriminated against by the Midwestern Fortune 500 engineering firm I had worked for when they found out I was Transsexual. Since then I had moved to New York to work in a high level position for the city and more recently relocated to the West Coast for the engineering position that I currently hold.
Although I advocate and work for Human Rights for all people, I feel that the last frontier if you will, of establishing Human Rights and equality in this country is for people who are GLBT. Only through positive exposure to the truth and understanding will society as a whole eventually come around. What Soulforce is doing is so important on so many levels and I would love to lend something useful to this group.
