Welcome to the LGBT Civil Rights and Activism Group
The purpose of the LGBT Civil Rights and Activism Group is to provide a discussion area of fierce advocacy for LGBT people and their allies. Our concerns regard issues of socio-economic justice and equality for LGBT people including (but not limited to): the repeal of DADT; the repeal of DOMA; nation wide marriage equality; freedom from discrimination in the workplace; legal protection and social support for LGBT families; freedom from discrimination in health care; freedom from all forms of harassment and physical violence -- and all other issues related to the justice, equality and well-being of LGBT people and their families. Public figures who are complicit in the oppression of LGBT people are acceptable topics of discussion in this group.

DUers of all sexual orientations and gender expression are welcome to participate as long as they support the mission of this group. Contrarians and devil's advocates are advised to pursue their agendas in other areas of DU. We forcefully declare that today is the time for action and activism to bring about civil justice and equality for LGBT Americans. The members of this group stand in solidarity with our oppressed brothers and sisters around the world and seek opportunities to bring about their unconditional equality, individual safety and well-being. Participants of the LGBT Civil Rights and Activism Group are asked to respect Dr. King's proclamation: "Rights delayed are rights denied."
