Our annual Creating Change conference is just one week away, but there's still time to submit your story, photo or video.
I'm thrilled by the response from so many of you who have already shared your ideas and thoughts with me about how you're creating change at home. All of these stories are truly inspiring, and I've incorporated them into the speech I'll deliver to the thousands of activists coming to Creating Change.
Thank you for being part of this movement.
And if you haven't done so already, please let me know how YOU are creating change.
Here are three easy ways you can share your story with me:
1. Share a photo
• Download the PDF that reads "I'm creating change by…"
• Then take your picture with this sign or have a friend take one.
• Upload your photo to the Task Force Flickr page or you may e-mail your photo directly
2. Share a video story on YouTube
• Film a quick video of yourself explaining how you're creating change. You may want to download the PDF sign,
write a brief message on it and then film a video holding the sign.
3. Put it in writing
• Submit your written story that tells us how you're creating change.
Your photo or video may be broadcast at the conference and online where I know it will fire up the attendees. Your stories, photos and videos certainly inspired me as I've been preparing my conference speech. Your ideas and your passion are the fuel for the LGBT movement. I am sure that together we can build our power and create the change all of us deserve.
There's still time to register and join the more than 2,000 activists who will create change in Minneapolis, February 2-6. Register online now.
