WE ARE TRYING TO PUSH FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY TO BE THE BIGGEST DAYS OF PROTEST, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
We will also use those days to get people to sign up, volunteer to help spread word, and educate the public about LIA and their practices, as well as other issues. So many people are doing so much already, so let's keep it up and not let it die, that's how we'll really get some things accomplished.

We will soon have interviews with three former Love In Action clients based in Memphis posted here, as well as more information on tactics that will be helpful in raising awareness and most effectively accomplishing the goals at hand, not only with LIA, but also in relation to the greater climate from which Love In Action operates.

  • Just getting word of this in San Francisco, put the info and photo links on my blog.

    You guys and gals are beautiful. Thank you for bringing to the world your honesty, your love and your empathy for others.

  • Oh it's killing me that I'm not able to go there. Good luck!

  • Your friends and family in Mississippi are thinking of you all! Take a stand! Memphis has a very large gay and lesbian community and there's no reason why there shouldn't be thousands there at the protests! Get off your lazy, apathetic butts and go!

  • I wish I could be there to show some support in person. I hope all of the protesters know that for each one of them, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of supporters such as myself who they're representing because we can't be there ourselves.

    Fight the good fight.

  • There is some good international coverage at http://ukgaynews.org.uk/Archive/2005june/1401.htm

    I arrived here from that site - the "message" is going round the world like crazy, showing the "power" of the internet. We are all rooting for Zach in Europe. Good luck with your efforts at QAC in Memphis. Only wish we were nearer so we could be of more support!

  • Ah! An idea! For those of us unlucky enough to be many miles away! Let's create a petition to send to LIA! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/ seems to do a good job! At least those of us who can't be there in person can send our outrage! Might it work?
