Announcement: Next Steps After the National Equality March Potluck/Organizing Meeting

On Saturday, October 17, 2009, from 5:00pm - 9:00pm, LGBTI Equality NOW! invites you to OutReach Community Center, 600 Williamson Street in Madison, to plan the next steps for the LGBTI equality movement. Details from LGBTI Equality NOW!:
The National Equality March went wonderfully, with around 200,000 people from all over the country coming to demand full civil rights for all people. 200,000 was double my own personal goal, and I believe higher than most organizers' expectations. It was beautiful, and inspiring, and we of LGBTI Equality NOW! are so glad to have been a part of making this historic march happen.

But this march is just another march if we don't build the mass movement out of it! So we need YOU to stay involved!! You are the movement! It's people just like you all over the nation that made this march happen!

Organizing for the National Equality March has played an important role
in uniting groups and individuals for a common cause. We need to keep that up if we are going to win this fight. The biggest point of this meeting is an attempt to get all the groups and individuals who want to keep this movement moving in Madison to come together and figure out campaigns we can work on together. This will also be a time where us who went to the march share our experiences - all are welcome to do so. Any and all groups are welcome to have a representative announce your group and let us know what you are about, what you have been doing, and what kinds of things you are looking to do.
