Friday Freebie

This one comes with a bonus: fighting injustice! Join the thousands who are calling for a repeal of Prop 8 which bans gay marriage in California by attending one of tonight's rallies. Let's hope things remain peaceful tonight and throughout this whole process. I found this info here. Not trying to be preachy; religion should have nothing to do with it. It's a matter of civil rights and inequality really. And the last time I checked Americans were pretty big on Civil Rights, no?

Guys there is a great LGBT civil rights organization called the Empowering Spirits Foundation. They are very creative in how they approach this hot topic issue of gay marriage, in that they engage in service oriented activities in communities typically opposed to equal rights to foster thought and change for LGBT equality.

A friend of mine told me about it and I thought it was a great, positive approach to the issue. We had so much fun at the last event and it was great to give back to the community. Plus it was great to converse with others on the other side of the table in a way that wasn't confrontational.

Anyway, this can be such a heated issue and I thought this was a unique approach.
