The 24/7 Catch Up: A Tuesday Edition

Whew, can you say, busy as a bee? You betcha. I stomped by into Central City earlier this week, got fifty winks of sleep, blew through a stack of snail mail, winced at the e-mail stash and went directly back to the Big Chair too keep things movin and groovin for the rest of the week. It's that "thing that I do," you know...being the VOICE out in the wilderness of GLBTQ land offering you the latest updates, links, mash-ups and gosh dern it whatever it takes to keep you informed. Without any delay, let's rock...

Benefits- R- Us: I posted about local benefits that have had lukewarm turnouts or response, so here's another chance for you everyone to demonstrate their concern and support for those living with HIV/AIDS. If you plan to attend and would like this forum to send it's ambassador give us a shout out. The goal is at least 50 shout outs or $100 in ChipIn contributions by show time. There's the Challenge, so what you gonna do?

BLK Agenda Rising: I've been made aware of community wide meeting in search of assessing our current needs, definitions and future goals. Local activist and capacity building facilitators are preparing to launch this endeavor. It's all going down at the Women's Project, 8.10.09 with time to be determined. Check back for more details and information this week!

The community building meeting at the Women's Project will be at 7 pm and the address is 2224 Main St. in Little Rock. This is not addressing just the BLK agenda but the entire SGL/LGBTQ community and our allies. All are welcomed!
