My partner and I along with some friends have launched Rainbowfootsoldiers.com. This new site will be the web presence for a grassroots group we're developing that will focus on direct action and direct engagement in the struggle for LGBT Equality.
While so many of our organizations focus on fundraising and lobbying, we felt there was a need to offer an alternative to "checkbook activism."
There are many people out there who want to join in the movement but can't afford to continually write checks or give money to HRC and other major groups. We're the folks who are willing to take to the streets to support our brothers and sisters. We're the people who are willing to walk the neighborhoods to gather support for our causes and speak to people one on one. We're the people who are willing to make sure that even the smallest event is supported with vocal activists not afraid to agitate for equality.
Rainbowfootsoldiers.com offers a chance to keep up to date on the latest news and information on LGBT issues through original articles as well as feed aggregation from the top LGBT blogs.
If you're interested in joining the fight you will find information at the site as well as a forum where you can sign up and share information on events in your area as well as learn about events where your help and voice are needed.
If you're interested in becoming a contributor to the site, please drop an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
