If you attended the Unite + Fight conference last weekend, we want your feedback! Please take five to ten minutes to fill out our
feedback survey — and thanks!
The host committee would like to thank everyone who helped make this conference an enormous success! And we are proud to announce that those who assembled on Sunday morning for the action planning session voted to establish a new organization.
We voted to form the Unite + Fight Midwest Equality Network! This new entity, to keep midwestern activists in touch with one another and coordinating actions, also voted unanimously to affiliate with Equality Across America. All the individual activists and groups in attenance remain independent and self-governing, but Unite + Fight Midwest Equality Network and EAA will help us coordinate on a regional and national level to make our actions more effective, and to ensure that even those who come out for a ten person action in a tiny rural town know they are part of something bigger.
Those who were present arranged for a first conference call to start organizing our network. We are also setting up a Google group for discussion and a Facebook presence. We’ll have more details soon. If you were unable to make it to the Sunday session but still want to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can now see the full workshop descriptions, as well as addresses and room numbers, on our schedule pages. Below are direct links to each workshop session page for your convenience.
