For almost a year the Presidential Appointments Project has been asking LGBT Americans to consider serving the next president of the United States. Starting right now, President-Elect Obama will appoint thousands of people to help him lead and change the country. The point of this important project, a community-wide effort, is simple. We will ensure the next president has a qualified, vetted pool of LGBT candidates for presidential appointments, and we will make sure he has every opportunity to include LGBT voices on the team that will implement his agenda.
If you haven't already, I urge you to consider public service during what promises to be an exciting and challenging four years. The two-step process to apply through the Project begins at www.glli.org/presidential.
