Sun Mar 1st 1:00pm 2015

Thanks to the partnership of the ND AFL-CIO, ND United, Pride Collective & Community Center, ND Women's Network and NDHRC, a free screening of "Pride" will take place on Sunday, March 1st at 1:00pm the Fargo Theatre. We invite and encourage you to invite others to join us! 

Movie Synopsis:
Its the summer of 1984 Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.

But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

Join in helping pass SB 2279! Protect ALL North Dakotans

Senate Bill 2279, an anti-discrimination bill, will come for a vote as soon as next week. SB 2279 would amend the North Dakota Human Rights Act and the North Dakota Fair Housing Act to provide the same protections from discrimination for all North Dakotans.  This is important so that no North Dakotan has to live in fear of being fired from her job or kicked out of his apartment based on sexual orientation. 

Businesses, job seekers and their families look for strong and supportive communities where they can thrive and call home.  Currently, 21 other states in the country provide protections and North Dakota must be competitive to fill the 20,000 job openings in our state.

A recent poll conducted by DFM Research reported that a majority of North Dakota residents over the age of 18 support SB2279 to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.

We need to be sure this message is heard loud and clear!

Can you join us for a night of action to tell our senators across the state to vote in favor of SB227?  Since the vote will likely come up during the week of Valentine’s Day, we thought it pretty fitting to encourage our senators to recognize Love is Love and support 2279!

Please join us for statewide efforts as we reach out to legislators, craft letters to the editors, and make sure our voices are heard!
