Hello BALIF Family & Friends-
As we patiently await the Prop 8 and DOMA decisions tomorrow, the BALIF Board of Directors has been reviewing all the hard work of our members and celebrating the coalitions we have built along the way. It has filled us all with a great sense of pride. Once the decisions are announced, look for BALIF's statement, which will recap BALIF's and our supportive coalitions' contributions toward marriage equality.
However SCOTUS decides these two momentous cases, there is still a lot of work to do to achieve full equality under the law and in the eyes of our fellow Americans and the world. Where do you see the LGBT civil rights movement in 5 or 10 years? Where do you think we should spend our time, energy and money? How will you contribute?
Pride week is in full swing and we look forward to seeing many of you at the festivities. Please check out http://balif.org/events for a full list of our events. Don't forget to join BALIF and Jones Day for the 5th Annual Pride Breakfast Celebration this Sunday before you head out to the Pride Parade.
Happy Pride everyone! Let's make it another one to remember!
BALIF Communications & Public Relations Chair
