Three Steps to Being a Better Advocate for the Equality Act (While You're Stuck at Home)
Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean your learning should slow down! So, stay safe and take these steps to engage.
- Learn: Learn more about The Equality Act, what it would do if passed, and how it would protect our LGBTQ+ loved ones by reviewing the PFLAG National press release from February 18, 2021.
- Watch: Watch the PFLAG National video series Advocacy in 10 Minutes or Less and think about how you can adapt the lobbying and advocacy skills you learn for the realities of COVID-19. You can also watch Change the World in Two Minutes: How to Share Your Story (presented virtually for the first time!) to craft the Equality Act story you plan to share with your legislators.
- Share: Share accurate, up-to-date information about the Equality Act from resources that you trust, and like this opportunity to take action with PFLAG National. You can also help us spread the word about Something to Talk About Live this week and our March 2021 PFLAG Academy Online session focused on the Equality Act!
Something to Talk About LIVE:
Something to Talk About LIVE, hosted by the PFLAG National Learning & Inclusion team, is a weekly broadcast that creates conversations around LGBTQ+ inclusion and diversity. Join us every Thursday at 4:30pm ET/1:30pm PT on social media (including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn) to be a part of the discussion. Viewers are invited to share their thoughts, ask questions, and their comments may even be featured on the live stream!
You can also use the article and questions posted each week to create your own conversations with colleagues, classmates, friends, and family members!
