A Day Without Gays
America voted for its first African-American President. But opponents of full equality for another minority were also successful across the Nation.
It's time to take a stand for FULL EQUALITY for ALL AMERICANS, including the LGBT Community.
45 States ban gay marriage in some form.
30 states ban gay and lesbian employment protection
16 states are planning to ban gay adoptions and fostering.
Civil Unions are denied the 1100 Federal benefits of marriage.
Join us on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.
STRIKE - Take the day off, close your business, or call in sick (unless you may get fired because you are gay or lesbian).
BOYCOTT - Don't buy anything, spend money or support the economy.
PARTICIPATE - Don't stay home. To volunteer, petition or protest, go to www.adaywithoutgays.com.
(If you live in California, go to www.couragecampaign.org to find out how to help overturn Prop 8).
THIS IS ABOUT RAISING AWARENESS. A one-day strike/boycott is symbolic and will not have a huge impact. However, for millions of gay and lesbians, the current economic situation is made even worse without the rights and benefits of marriage or employment protection. Also, gay marriage would have brought $683 million and over 2200 jobs to CA in 3 years. If you really support America's economy, support Gay Marriage.
