  4. Report GLBT hate crimes or discrimination.
  5. Write a postcard to the Memphis Mayor and City Council encouraging them to enact a comprehensive city non-discrimination ordinance that includes sexual orientation and gender identity or expression (We'll pay the postage and tell you who your city council members are).
  6. Register to vote in this pivotal election year.
  7. Meet local elected officials.
  8. Meet like-minded people who want to promote fair-minded legislation in Tennessee.
