National Health Care, Housing, and Education Task Force

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is telling us all to call Congress today.

To demand marriage equality? No.
To ask them to overturn the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy? No.
To garner support for immigration rights for same sex partners? No.

"The Task Force is working with its coalition partners in the Emergency Campaign for American's Priorities as we help convince Congress that it must provide enough funding so that more people get the health care, housing, education, nutrition and other services they need."

So, it's clear that there's a strong organization representing the interests of those who wish to receive taxpayer-funded health care, housing, and other services.

Now, all we need is a strong organization representing the interests of the LGBT community. Perhaps we should start one. I wonder what we'd call it.
