More Voices Carrying: Monday, Monday

Fall Fling: According to an e-blast from CAR, they are interested in collaborating in presenting another community based event that brings ALL of us together to deepen our relationships and move forward the dialog about Equality. The date would be for October the 10th. We're thinking Allsop Park again, there's folks that still want to play ball since the heat will be less, but we are open to location ideas. We have had some difficulty around setting a meeting time due to folks schedules, but time is of the essence. We'd like to set a firm meeting date for September 8th at 6:30pm at the CAR offices, 800 Scott St., inside the First Presbyterian Church.
The following list of invitees represent area organizations or entities such as, Brothas and Sistahs Stonewall Democrats, CorneliusOnPoint, The Alliance GSA at UALR, Fusion GSA at Pulaski Tech, Little Rock Black Pride, PFlag of Little Rock, and Little Rock Capitol Pride
If there's another group or individual who should be on this planning team, please extend the invitation. Organizers are appealing to all groups to RSVP to this invitation. If you can't come, please send someone to represent your organization, group. We want this to be a true collaboration. You've heard the call, so it's all about the response.

FACEBOOK Me & U: I didn't realize how many of you are down with the social networking portal Facebook. I've just been amazed at the friend request, wall scribling and postings that have come my way. Of course, our presence on that platform is in an effort to continue broadening our audience and connection with the GLBTQ community. Thanks so much for your outreach and hopfully as I learn more on how to use this exploding medium, we can touch you, you and gosh dern it you too!!
