EQUALITY FLORIDA NEEDS YOU TO LOBBY!Equality Florida sent an alert that the right wing is targeting Florida legislators that are sponsors of gay-friendly legislation.
Equality Florida has set up a site to allow us to express our support for these courageous legislators. Please, go and support them now. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, after you send your letter to our friends, make sure you take the time to SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES in the State Legislature to ask them to support these initiatives. TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE IT PERSONAL. We can be treated as "others" as long as people don't know who we are. Go to http://ga4.org/campaign/champions09 and let your legislators know what you think.
If not me, who?
If not now, when?

STATEWIDE EVENT - ROAD TRIP!!!!
DEMONSTRATION & CANDLELIGHT VIGIL AT FLORIDA GOVERNOR'S WEDDING
| ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Impact-Florida will hold a peaceful and respectful demonstration and candlelight vigil outside of Florida Governor Charlie Crist and Carole Rome's wedding and reception.|
Governor Crist first stated he believed in a "Live and Let Live" attitude when speaking about Amendment 2. However, he then became an outspoken proponent of Amendment 2, which passed by a margin of only 1.9%. The vague and ambiguous wording of this amendment could go much further than promised. It could adversely effect domestic partners benefits of both heterosexual and gay Floridians.
Impact-Florida spokesperson Lorna Bracewell said, "I truly believe our demonstration for marriage equality outside of Governor Crist's wedding will serve to educate the Governor and all Floridian's that the people injured by passage of Amendment 2 are real people. The more visible we in the GLBT community are, the better our chances will be for one day achieving full citizenship in this state and in this country.
