The Bisexual Organizing Project has signed on to a letter of support for the family of Michael Brown, the African American man slain by police in Ferguson, MO on Saturday, August 9, 2014. We stand in solidarity with more than twenty other LGBT and other national organizations who have signed the letter originally penned by the Human Rights Campaign.
Here is the text of the letter, in full:
When communities experience fear, harassment and brutality simply because of who they are or how they look, we are failing as a nation. In light of the recent events in Missouri, it is clearer than ever that there is something profoundly wrong in our country.
Also, GLAAD just published this piece recommending additional actions GLBT groups and individuals can take: "How you can stand with Michael Brown's family and the people of Ferguson".

With Zoom producers and experienced programming staff, we are developing a new way of experiencing BECAUSE while keeping all the engagement, support, and community that has been at the core of the conference for the last 29 years.
