Don't forget that tomorrow, Dec. 1oth is Day Without A Gay (lol that sounds like some indie musical:). But seriously, this day is meant show how important LGBT folk are to America's economy and workforce. I understand everyone can't afford to take off work. Bills have to be paid and palms gotta be greased.
But there are other ways you can help:
2. Help seek out and post volunteer oportunities in your area.
- Local Gay-Straight Alliance
- Trevor Project/Helpline
- SPCAs (Pet Rescues)
- Local PFLAG Chapter
- Nursing Homes
- HIV/AIDS Services
- Big Brothers/Big Sisters
- Homeless Shelters
- Gay & Lesbian Centers
- Meals on Wheels
- Rehab Centers
- Local Schools
3. Educate others about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Currently it's still legal in 30 states to fire someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. ENDA would make it this illegal. Here are two sites to find out more:
National Gay & Lesbian Task Force: ENDA Info
ACLU ENDA Page
Contact your member of the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Contact your SENATORS.
6. Boycott by not spending your money on anything accept the necessities. ( That's my plan).
