If you want to get on the bus for the National Equality March ...

From our friends at LGBTI Equality Now:

Are you planning on coming but haven't bought your ticket? Then reply to this email immediately and let me know this- including if you wish to come but do not have the funds to do so.

We only have 10 days until we leave for the National Equality March. We need to figure out if we need to get a 3rd bus. We only have 17 tickets left, and 20 people from Minniapolis want to come join us on our bus. I personally think we need a 3rd bus as we are the only way these 20 people from Minniapolis will be able to get there, and in prior experience in organizing buses to protests the vast majority of the tickets are sold out within the last week. We went from 40 tickets sold to 90 tickets sold just in this last week. Soooo... we need your help to figure out how many people want to come but have not yet bought their tickets so that we can know if we can fill another 50 seats from here in Madison. And if you want a third bus to go, get involved and help us with publicity -we need an all out pubicity mobilization if we want to do this!! (reply to this for details!)

Want to help us raise the funds so we can make an extra 50 people coming from the midwest a reality???
Come to our fundraiser on Thursday!!
