This Week: Add the Words Happenings

We are coming up on the end of the Idaho Legislature’s session, and the Legislature has yet to take action on the Add the Words campaign and print a bill and hold a hearing on Adding the Words to the Idaho Human Rights Act that would make it illegal to discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Idahoans in employment and housing.

There have been many protests at the Idaho Capitol, and many protesters have been arrested for blocking rooms and doorways in the Capitol. This week, Idaho Falls people are organizing their own vigils and rallies in support of the Capitol protesters, for those who cannot be in Boise. Details on the Monday Vigil and Wednesday Rally follow:

Monday, March 10:
Add the Words Vigil, 7:30 pm
Idaho Falls Greenbelt by the War Memorial (on Memorial Drive)
Candlelight vigil

Wednesday, March 12:
