Book Discussion Group Update

We had our final meeting of the book discussion group around The New Jim Crow today. I will have a review of the book up soon. But it is not the end of our group or our work!

We are going to work to add anti-discrimination language to local city ordinances. We also want to bring a showing of “The House I Live In” to Idaho Falls. And we have more plans after that, so stay tuned!

It is a sad fact of life in the United States that marriage is not equally available to all people. Its availability is dependent on sexual orientation and place of residence — not a good situation in the land of the free.

If you are committed to changing this sad state of affairs, and making marriage available to all adults, regardless of sexual orientation, and you’re not sure where to start, then visit the Standing on the Side of Love Take Action for Marriage Equality page. They have set up a great website to help everyone get started working for marriage equality.
