Time to Take Action

I just watched an amazing YouTube video by Will Phillips, a 10-year-old boy from Arksansas.

He got in trouble for refusing to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance, not because he does not love his country and its flag, but because he recognizes that there is not “liberty and justice for all.”

You can see and hear Will by clicking here. http://www.youtube.com/getequal 

What Will did was use what he had at hand to take a stand, to make a difference. As he says, we can all do something to promote change, to champion equality and justice.

You may or may not want to do as he did, but there is something you can do. So do it. Today.  

Right now, there is a major effort to push House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to get ENDA (the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, HR 3017) out of committee. You can call her at 202-225-4965 and leave a message. Or write her at http://www.speaker.gov/  Speak up for job protections for LGBT folks!
