NICOLE's WORK FOR GAY & TRANSGENDER PEOPLE
Like any Idahoan, gay and transgender people want to live, work, support their families and contribute to their communities without fear of being fired, evicted or refused service by businesses in their communities. We want to be included in Idaho's human rights act with the addition of 4 words: "sexual orientation, gender identity."
LGBT HISTORY IN IDAHO
From the Successful No On 1 Campaign in 1994 to dismantling white supremacist inholdings in North Idaho, our state has stood up for human rights, respect, and the golden rule in the past. We can again.
WHY CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE?
Gay and transgender people have written letters and emails, made phone calls, met with law makers, worked with lobbyists and organizations, reasoned with leadership, held rallies, posted thousands for stick notes of protest and still the law did not change. Silent, peaceful, respectful civil disobedience has been our last resort.
Make the world a kinder, more just, compassionate and prosperous place, not just for the few but for the many. Idaho Fails it's people by underfunding it's schools, mental health treatment and support, substance abuse prevention sand addiction recovery.
2017 ACTIONS AND GOALS
We urge Idaho legislators not to remain silent but to add the words sexual orientation and gender identity to Idaho's existing non-discrimination laws to make clear that firing, evicting and refusing to serve gay and transgender people is unacceptable in our state. You can donate toward radio ads urging legislators to add the words. DONATE.
