December eNewsletter 2011

In this issue: Sarah Howell says goodbye; watch our "Ripples of Change" video; and our tool "Shared Oppressions" helps organizations to think about how to integrate LGBTQ issues into their work.

Dear Friend,

As we wrap up 2011, we are working hard to prepare for next year's campaigns and changes at the Center. Sarah Howell, a trainer and organizer, says goodbye as she heads to the snowy mountains of Montana. We've uploaded "Shared Oppressions" is a tool that helps your organization to think about how to be inclusive of LGBTQ issues in your current work. And we want to thank the folks who have taken the time to watch our "Ripples of Change" video. Have you seen it? Take a moment and share in a part of the work this last year and thanks for your support.

In solidarity,
