The ACLU LGBT Project ac.gifrecently launched Get Busy, Get Equal , an online toolkit for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender activists. Get Busy, Get Equal is designed to equip activists who don't necessarily have much experience organizing with the tools they need to effect real and sustainable change.

Get Busy, Get Equal is an online toolkit designed to help turn dreams of equality into reality. The site features a dynamic design and easy usability, as well as new content and videos. The site also has a blog discussing LGBT rights and breaking news, as well as opportunities to connect to activists through the social networking sites Facebook, Youtube, Flickr, and MySpace.

There is also in-depth information on how to protect LGBT relationships, pass civil rights laws and non-discrimination policies, and make schools safe for LGBT students. This collection of how-to guides, helpful hints, step-by-step instructions and other resources can be used right now to protect LGBT people and our rights.

Get Busy, Get Equal provides the tools local activists need to reach out to their neighbors, schools, employers and elected officials and help them understand that fairness and equality for LGBT people is the right thing for America.

Some of main areas of focus are discrimination, parenting, relationships/marriage, Youth & Schools, transgender, and HIV issues.

This site is a great resource, whatever your level of activism or involvement. The amazing blend of new technology (social networking and blogging) and the huge amounts of information make this site a must for anyone involved in the LGBT community.

This sounds like a great new resource. Thanks for telling us about it, Waymon!

They've put quite a bit of work into this. As Waymon says, there's a huge amount of information there. The ACLU did a damn good job on this project.

"...give us the tools and we will finish the job..."

Amen to that, Robert.

This really is an AMAZING resource.
