Special Thanks to our Public Whip Count Partner

The LGBT community is often told that there is not the support needed to pass, or even introduce, certain pieces of legislation. Rarely are we told who needs to be persuaded to gain the needed support. When we are it is usually within days of the vote. And, because of technological constraints, this information is not up to date.

The Public Whip Count fundamentally changes the way advocacy on legislation works. It empowers the grassroots, and any citizen, to possess the knowledge necessary to organize and pressure our elected officials until enough votes are secured to introduce or pass legislation. It replaces secrecy with transparency and accountability and allows anyone who cares about LGBT equality to become an activist for full legal equality.

The most revolutionary aspect of our Public Whip Count tool is that it shares power with national organizations, the grassroots, elected officials and party leaders and allows real-time updates.

Bayh, Evan D IN 202-224-5623 Undecided GetEqual.org TARGET http://getequal.org/2010/08/enda-summer/ Per Constituent Eugene...As an fyi, I had a face to face conversation with Senator Bayh this morning. He continues to support Hate Crimes and ENDA (as presented last year). He isn’t committed to ENDA with transgender inclusion. I don’t think he’s inextricably opposed but not empowered with the information to make take that step. Regret we didn’t have more time to discuss the issue. Someone from his state should follow up and bring him around. -- Did cosponsor hate crimes bill http://bit.ly/JEXvX
