Change does happen

Late last month, the US Census Bureau announced that it planned to remove a proposed question about sexual orientation from their national survey, the Census Barriers, Attitudes and Motivators Study (CBAMS).

The National LGBTQ Task Force discovered this was happening and immediately notified colleague organizations, sent out an action alert, and mobilized people nationwide to take a stand against government discrimination - and for counting us in ther US Census. And it worked!

YOUR voices and actions pressured them to reverse their decision. LGBT people will be counted.

The National LGBTQ Task Force annually organizes Creating Change, the premiere activist and advocate venue. Central Voice was a 2017 media sponsor.
