I am asking 2 things:
1. Call President Linda Hodge at both locations below to complain about the PTA's rejection of PFOX despite the fact that PFOX supports school safety and has a perspective to share concerning homosexuality and schools that you support.
2. I am looking for people who are attending the national conference in Columbus June 23-26 or for people who know people who are going. We are planning a competing workshop on schools and sexual orientation and want to attract PTA conference attendees. This would mean finding out from the local leadership who if anyone is attending from your town. If you know the person or think they might be sympathetic to us, then I would like you to put the conference attendee in contact with me.
Oh yes, and pray for the meetings we will be holding in June in Columbus!
