“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
Twenty four people gathered last weekend at a hotel at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. The topic was the “immediate need for full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender people in the United States.” The result was The Dallas Principles. From Pam’s House Blend:
This is about looking forward, being proactive and getting involved. I, along with my fellow authors of The Dallas Principles, believe the time for change now, as equality blossoms across this great nation.
Take a look at the bios of those involved. They include people from all walks of life and from all over the country, including Virginia’s own Lisa Turner.
My mother, bless her heart, taught me that nothing beats a try but a failure. It’s worth it to try to achieve equality for the GLBT community. Support The Dallas Principles.
