Democracy for Monroe County, December 2013 Link-Up
Thursday December 5th Program begins at 6:30pm the Fellowship Hall of the First United Church, 2420 E 3rd St, Bloomington
The December Link-Up features a very special guest, Richard Sutton, executive director of Indiana Equality. He will be joining us to help start a conversation about how to bring the huge resource that is the Bloomington activist community into the fight to defeat HJR 6, the bill that would authorize a statewide referendum to Amend the Indiana Constitution to continue marriage discrimination. We will also be welcoming Bloomington’s own BloomingOut host, Helen Harrell, and producer, Carol Fischer. This is a fight we have to win, not only because discrimination in marriage is very wrong, but because this state’s future reputation as a welcoming, tolerant state is on the line. RSVP either on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/729794520382513/
or on our website at http://democracyformonroecounty.org/dec2013
