ACTION: Utah Legislative LGBT Town Hall Meeting Announced

January 15, 2011

This is a great opportunity to kick off the new year and become involved with organizations that have your interests at heart. These are local chapters and organizations committed to helping achieve equal rights for the LGBT citizens of Utah. Attend, listen, learn and act! As Martin Luther King Jr. once stated:

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”

Each of these organizations are committed to helping fight the cause of unjust discrimination and inequality in the state of Utah.  They’re here to help, but they can’t do it alone.  They’re here to educate, support, and rally the states individuals into action.  In the end however, it’s up to us as individuals to fight for our rights and use the resources available to us to accomplish those goals. 

As a LGBT citizen of the State of Utah, if you want equal rights under the law, the freedom to marry the love of your life, adopt a child and not run the risk of being denied housing or being fired for your orientation YOU need to fight for those rights. YOU need to support organizations who support you, YOU need to show our legislators and civic leaders that YOU are not invisible and that YOU will not be discriminated against.–Phil Black
