I got this message from the Indy PFLAG folks. Please consider participating in their action - and forward the info on to as many straight allies as possible!

Hello everyone,

Indy PFLAG has kicked off a "100 Letters to Legislators" campaign! We want to stop the amendment. And we want to engage as many straight allies as we can to help us.

We've invited all the PFLAG chapters in Indiana to join with us, as well as friends like you. Please let your organization members, friends and families know about it, too.

Go to and click on 100 Letters on the front page to read all about it. If you send a letter to your legislator, let us know so we can add it to our running count. Working together, we know we can stop this!

The Indy PFLAG team

On a side note, I will be speaking at the next Indy PFLAG meeting about the dangers of SJR-7 and what the average citizen can do to help stop the amendment. If you're interested in attending the meeting, it'll be held at St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Indianapolis (86th and Meridian) on March 11th from 2pm-4pm. The meeting will be held in the Youth Wing so go to the north door. I hope to see you there! Bring a friend!

The "youth wing" there is actually a separate building, called Luke's Lodge, behind the main building. You almost need a road map there, it's so large.

Isn't it fitting that this kind of effort is being undertaken by whom--? Our parents. Where we always go when we really need help. God bless 'em.

This week I've made it a point to ask people I know to write letters. No one has turned me down. Some have asked for suggested language, and I'll gladly offer it, but I've listened to their responses to my request, and usually, tell them:

Write what you just told me. It's your words.
One person wrote Rep. Noe, and got a response in three days. Form letter, and Rep. Noe is a hopeless cause, but the communication was made.

Let's hope this effort works.

Hey! Who's getting responses from Rep Noe in 3 days? I wrote her two weeks ago about the hate crimes bill and she didn't send anything! I know it's been side-lined, but I'd like a form letter too!

I guess I'll just have to settle for having a good body.

I know Cindy from other work. She's hopeless. She purposely sorts her mail, and answers constituents' mail first.

Plus, the person I asked to write her, is a good friend of hers, so maybe it got moved to the top of the stack. Who knows?

Still, ask all your friends to write their representatives. I think it does help. Even if your representatives' views on this subject are not moveable.

Even if it's Cindy Noe. God help her. If there's a more closed, narrow mind in the legislature, please tell me who it is.

Write 'em.

I see that they've only collected 13 letters so far. Be sure to participate! Maybe Noe will respond! *grins*
