Any other New Yorkers planning on being here Tuesday? Jenna and I will be there. Jenna is the designated pastor for a busload of girls being brought up from NYC by some friends she met at the LGBT POC Health Summit.
From the Empire State Pride Agenda website (http://www.prideagenda.org/OurProgra...Default.aspx):
On Tuesday, April 29, 2008 join hundreds of New Yorkers who will be traveling to Albany to help win marriage equality, transgender non-discrimination protections, safe schools for LGBT youth, and more funding for our community’s health and human services needs.
Last year we brought more than 1100 people from all across New York to make sure that our elected officials in Albany saw first hand the power and determination of our community and our allies. This year will be even bigger—be a part of this historic day.
Don’t worry if you’ve never lobbied a legislator. We will provide you with the training you need. For some of you, going to Albany means that you have take a day off from work, and that isn’t always easy. But we won’t win this civil rights struggle unless we all come together at critical moments to show our community’s strength.
