Become a Champion

WHO ARE CHAMPIONS OF THE DALLAS PRINCIPLES?

Champions are those who believe in and spread the word about The Dallas Principles and their call for full immediate LGBT civil rights, and who commit to taking action to make that happen.

HOW DO I BECOME A CHAMPION OF THE DALLAS PRINCIPLES?

Champions demonstrate their commitment via any number of ways such as having a history of long time activism in the LGBT movement, undertaking significant efforts to advance equality, posting multiple insightful blog posts and/or helpful actions on the Act On Principles website, or by having a prominence that will bring special focus on LGBT civil equality to a broad audience, among many other ways. However, being a champion is not  a reward for past activity – it is a commitment to champion equality through promotion of the Dallas Principles and to take action for equality.

There is no nomination process for Champions. Potential champions identify themselves following the process outlined below.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF BEING A CHAMPION?

  1. Champions can post immediately to the blog or submit an action without waiting for editorial review
  2. Champions have access to a dedicated listserv for quick exchanges of ideas with other Champions
  3. Champions  can participate in occasional conference calls with the other Champions to discuss how to achieve LGBT equality now
  4. Champions receive recognition on our website with bio and picture
  5. Champions have a personal webpage in ActOnPrinciples.org with links to all their posts, actions, and comments
