The fight for equal rights never rests!
On January 10th, we will come together as one UNITED FRONT
asking the LGBTQ community to join us in signing an Open Letter to President Barack Obama, during a NATIONAL DOMA PROTEST.
This letter will remind President Elect Barack Obama of the promises he made to us. It will also serve as a pledge from our community that we will hold him to his promises and help him achieve them.
VoteStrike can't just put a letter online and ask that people sign it.
We need to take to the streets. As we all know...
Outreach & Education Will End Discrimination.
We MUST Infiltrate, to Educate, and Stop Hate!
This is why we CONTINUE to come together as a community and
speak out about the injustices that exist nationally AND locally.
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Find out who is organizing a DOMA Protest in your area. (Quick Link to State Page) If there isn't one, then volunteer to organize, or at least get signatures!
Grab the Open Letter and take to the streets to gain signatures.
Get one million signatures (in total) by the end of the day on January 10th! Once we have a minimum of one million signatures, we will make certain that President Elect Barack Obama receives our letter on DAY 1 of his presidency!
Sign up to organize a carpool in your area that gets everyone to the closest protest
Get a group of friends together to canvas your neighborhood & streets to get signatures for the open letter.
The event itself will vary by location depending on organizers availability and local sense of how to best do it. Please make posts below to discuss ideas...
