Thanks again to Nel Ward, editor extraordinaire!
Lots of news and update on the lesbian couple who was evicted from their low income housing. BOLI is working on appeals and we hope that there will someday be reimbursement for the huge financial loss they have suffered in losing their furnishings, clothing, deposits–not to mention their pride and sanity as they have struggled to stay afloat and indoors during these colder days. It’s not too late to help with donations–contact Ineka Estabrook at firstname.lastname@example.org for how you can help directly.
Lots of activities underway for young people–see the calendar on page 7.
Drop us a line of encouragement–and send in your membership! (see the form on the last page of the newsletter)–your commitment to our work means a lot.
