Activism: Groups, Individuals, Resources

The American Civil Liberties has an entire section dedicated to our rights. Includes information on the many court cases it has brought on our behalf.

Be Active
You know you want to do something, but you don't know quite how to go about doing it. Here's the place to find out how to do, what you want to do, when you want to do it --- or even give you the idea of what to do in the first place.

Digital Queers
Formed by queer cybergeeks, you can volunteer or just join in the many activities, both on and offline.

A wonderful group that watches out for everybody's rights and keeps an eye on the part of the "right" that is a "wrong."

Project Open Mind

Surf & Support
You can passively donate to a wide-variety of lesbigay organizations by visiting sponsoring web sites. I chose "Project Angel Food." Don't forget to set Gay/Lesbian Issues as the page you end up at when you're done!
