Video: "Neutral: An Open Letter to Michele Bachmann"
This piece really isn't about Michele Bachmann-- as I say in the poem, she's a convenient figurehead. The problem here is much bigger, of course. I'll let the poem speak for itself, but definitely wanted to share some further reading material and ways to plug in:
MINNPOST: "Bullying gay and lesbian kids: How a school district became a suicide contagion area"
A Star Tribune piece about GSAs in the Anoka-Hennepin school district.
A Star Tribune piece about how the neutrality policy is being challenged.
Website for the Southern Poverty Law Center
This page at the MN Activist Project lists a few organizations in the Twin Cities area who do work around LGBTQ rights. Check them out and get involved.
If anyone knows specific ways that people can plug in, please leave a comment.
