I was very happy to get a facebook invite yesterday for Join The Impact's newest campaign: Fairness Works.
Join The Impact is the grassroots organization that was able to, with zero money, mobilize millions of LGBT people to march in the streets to protest the passage of Proposition 8 last November, all through the power of the internet.
Now they are lifting up a campaign to knock-out job discrimination with a three pronged punch. Their campaign focuses energy on the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), and the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT).
On July 25th, in communities around the country, a grassroots army of people will be holding dream-ins, part mis-mash of events, part teach-in, part protest, part direct legislative lobbying, and part- testimony, to lift up voices of discrimination in our community and how ENDA and EFCA and the repeal of DADT can bring fairness for all workers.
For those in the community who have been using the rallying cry of "no more excuses" here is an excellent way to put our anger and energy to action.
