Get a free "Queer the Census" sticker!

Dear Friend,

The census is not necessarily the topic you've been waiting to hear about, I know, but bear with me for a moment.

It's coming up in March or April, and while it's supposed to be an accurate count of everyone in the country, there's no question that asks if someone is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

This is a huge problem. The data collected has a direct impact on issues that are critical to every American - issues like health care, economic stability, safety. And when LGBT people are not counted, individuals, families, and communities suffer.

The good news is that we can change this. Join me and sign the petition from CREDO Action and The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force urging the Census Bureau to make sure everyone is counted.
