Rally to Add the Words - Jan 11, 2014
Come show your support for equality in Idaho! 87% of Idahoans believe no one should be fired simply because they are straight or gay. If you agree then show your support for Add the Words. Attend the rally, contact your 3 state legislators (all Idahoans have two Representatives and one Senator), and tell your friends why you know you are on the right side of history. We simply want to Add the Words "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to Idaho's existing Human Rights Act. As former Republican Governor of Idaho and former head of the Idaho Republican Party Phil Batt recently said, it is past time to Add the Words to the Act he helped create. For years the Idaho legislature has silenced us and our requests for a hearing - this year let's convince them to hear our voices and simply Add the Words!
Join us January 11, 2014 at 1p at the Add the Words, Idaho rally on the steps of the Idaho State Capitol. Speakers include 94.9 The River's Ken Bass and his wife Michelle Holt Casella-Bass, Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb, Representative Grant Burgoyne, Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest CEO Elaine Rose, Pocatello community leader Susie Matsuura, and Capital High Gay-Straight Alliance student leader Zach Bramwell. You'll also see great performances by Curtis Stigers and the Common Ground Community Chorus. After the rally get warm and socialize at the Boise Pride after party featuring Blaze and Kelly at Cazba in downtown Boise. Step out with us in support of equality for all! We look forward to seeing you at the rally!
