Blog Posts from December 2015
As the year comes to a close, here are 15 (plus a bonus for the New Year) things your support helped GLAD take on in 2015:
When Marjorie Charney moved to Boston in 1983, she didn’t expect she’d someday become a volunteer at GLAD – in fact, she was just learning from her new community the difference between GLAD and GLAAD. But learn the difference she did, and she came to love the organization GLAD and all it does. We sat down with Marjorie to chat about her experience with GLAD Answers.
For #GivingTuesday, we asked our GLAD Answers Volunteers why they give their time to GLAD.
The scenes by now seem familiar. Activists blocking traffic at busy city intersections with locked arms, chanting “We’re fired up. We won’t take it anymore.” Protestors taking over streets and civic buildings, to raise awareness about the tragic loss of lives in their community and a government’s complicity in those deaths.
