Why participate in the Task Force for GLBT Issues?

1. Because GLBT issues are fast becoming central to the upcoming national elections, and the dangers of this unleashing intolerance and bigotry
against GLBT people, locally and nationally, are very real.

2. Because the gay marriage debate in national, state and local politics is an extremely complex issue that demands society face all its intracacies squarely.

3. Because GBLT issues affect our entire society, they require a broad, representative spectrum of society to address fairly and thoroughly.


WHAT ARE SOME OF OUR GOALS?

1. Outreach, Education and Advocacy for local media, faith institutions,
business, educational, arts and political leaders, and community-based and non-profit groups and organizations.

2. Supporting an internet discussion group for our local community, where centralized resources can be found as well.

3. Working with the NCCJ's Interfaith Dialogue Committee to present one or
more forums on Religion and GLBT Issues.

4. Networking to coordinate efforts with other NCCJ regional offices across
the state and region on GLBT issues.

5. Supporting and enhancing the efforts of organizations within the local
GLBT community, through networking and co-sponsoring events, or as our time
permits.

6. Brainstorming other initiatives and priorities as we go.


Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who might be
interested in this work.
