Allegheny County Councilwoman Amanda Green will be attending the Big Queer Rally on Saturday to address the crowd about her proposed ordinance to extend civil protections in housing, employment and public accomodations to LGBTQ residents of Allegheny County.
Good news. That makes the County (Green), City (Kraus) and the State (Wagner) heard from. Hopefully, our other allies will attend.
A group of folks who attended the recent advocacy training have taken the initiative to promote advocacy to the attendees by distributing postcards. That's an awesome grassroots effort. I hope you'll be there to fill out a postcard and be part of the difference.
Speaking of awesome, I just saw a KDKA report that Al Franken has been certified the winner of his Senate race.
