There are things happening that I care about that I’d like others to possibly care about too so I’ll post them below:

1)


” ‘In 30 minutes, 18 state Senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. Their disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights is an outrage that will never be forgotten,’ said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller. ‘Tonight, 18 Senate Republicans conspired to take government away from the people.’ ”

Read more about how Wisconsin GOP stripped public workers’ bargaining rights.

Terribly sad.  Why do Republicans yearn so passionately to turn this country into a Caste System?

What you can do to help: HELP GIVE WISCONSIN BACK TO ITS PEOPLE.

2)


“In September 2010, returning from Nashville where Carol Ann and Laura Stutte celebrated their anniversary, they found a pile of ashes where their dream home once stood.

Despite numerous police reports documenting a neighbor who had threatened to burn down their home and who repeatedly told them, ‘The only thing better than one dead queer is two dead queers,’ no arrests have been made.”

What you can do to help: Please read the article & then demand the insurance company pay the lesbian arson victims by taking a minute to Sign the Petition.

3)


“HRW researcher Maria Burnett reports on the funeral of Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato (who was murdered). Burnett says the funeral was disrupted when a preacher spewed anti-gay sentiments. Kato was a leading voice in the fight against Uganda’s controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill.”

Hear the report & Read the original news release on his murder.  

What you can do to help: Read about Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill & Follow these simple supportive steps.

Additional Info: Read  the In-Depth Wikipedia Article on Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which outlines its dangerous, inhumane, monstrous implications for the LGBT community in Uganda.
