Always good news to see grassroots efforts to push for equality. 

Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County is on the path toward establishing protected class status for the LGBT community.  You can find out more about this effort through their Facebook Page.

It really is hand to hand combat to win over the hearts and minds of elected officials.  That won't happen without our full participation in the struggle for equality.  Join the Facebook Page to get yourself educated and be humbled that Pittsburgh has a twenty year start, plus domestic partnership benefits for City employees and a domestic partner registry.  Progress can happen with dedication, careful planning and the unrelenting pressure to hold our electeds accountable for the equality they profess to support. 

Congrats to the folks in Lower Merion.  I'll be watching and hoping for the best.
