“I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

 I really hope y’all know the truth in this. I’ve been blessed to have a loving family that supported my coming out process. But I have way too many friends who didn’t have that luxury.

Tomorrow is National Coming Out Day.  I hope this doesn’t deter you from coming out!

It deters me. I’ll be the one of four.

This statistic was also shared by one of the ladies who filled out a card for Inspiration Connection from Aliforney Center For homeless LGBTQ youth. SEE THE CARD HERE.

The 4th iteration of the board contains a cork board ($5) and a table ($10)!!! These are all very necessary things for propping up a bamboo stick and all the more necessary for grabbing attention. People really love that sign, and the whole endeavor seems oh-so-much more legitimate now!

The 3rd iteration of the board = a sign tied up to a bamboo pole and new representatives Elizabeth (pictured) and Rose (not pictured)!!!

My name is Alex. I’m a Latin American studies graduate student looking to create bridges of communication between the U.S. & the Left in Latin America. I think a lot of our frustrations associated w/ social inequality could be helped with some insight from our friends in Cuba & Venezuela. Let’s start a dialogue!

Read about fair elections — we can change the systemRebuildtheDream.com
SUMMARYRebuild the Dream is a non-profit organization that breathes life into, tells the story of, and acts as a hub for the emerging American Dream Movement. After you sign up to join Rebuild the Dream, we’ll send you an email whenever there’s a way for you to take action to revitalize and restore the American Dream, alongside hundreds of thousands of other members of the movement. In addition, we’ll soon be rolling out new tools that will enable you to organize locally on your own initiative with others in your community. We’ll let you know as soon as they’re ready.
Right now the American Dream is under siege. Tens of millions of willing workers can’t find jobs. Millions of homeowners have lost their homes to foreclosure and millions more are underwater. Instead of investing in our shared future, politicians are giving tax breaks to the rich and then slashing vital services families depend on. Rather than expanding protections for the middle class during these difficult economic times, they’re trying to gut workers’ rights.
But a new movement is rising all across America to fight back.
It was born among the teachers, students, firefighters and nurses of Wisconsin who took over their Capitol to stop Governor Walker’s power grab. Now it’s spreading as millions of other Americans–inspired by the events in Madison, Wisconsin–stand up to say “No” to right-wing attacks on the middle class.
