In advance of this Saturday's series of statewide rallies, supporting rights for Idaho's gay and transgender people, this week's edition of BW considers the Add the Words campaign.
Efforts to add the terms "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to Idaho's anti-discrimination law have been unsuccessful for the last six years. But this year, people across Idaho have been writing testimony and short messages, in support of the issue, on sticky post-it notes. The notes are being hung daily by Add the Words volunteers on glass doors inside the State Capitol Building.
In addition to a dozen other rallies across Idaho, an Add the Word event is scheduled for 1 p.m. this Saturday, Jan. 28, on the steps of the Capitol.
