GREAT FALLS RISING GATHERING – OCTOBER 29th, 2019 – LGBTQ Issues in Great Falls

Great Falls Rising will hold its October 29th gathering at 6 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation. The event is open to the public; please invite your friends and neighbors. A survey was taken at the September gathering as to what issues our supporters wish to pursue for the next few months. We will begin that pursuit with a panel on LGBTQ+ presentations.

Also Aart Dolman continues his book review that occurs immediately before the program.

AGENDA:

6:00 pm – Social – you are welcome to bring beverages and snacks.
6:30 pm – Welcome and introductions
6:40 pm – Holistic overview of LGBTQ+ by MT Human Rights Network
6:50 pm – Panel on LGTBQ+ issues moderated by Laura Wight
7:40 pm – Q and A
8:00 pm – Announcements

At 5:30 pm, Aart Dolman will continue his review of the Mueller Report. It deals with the Republican and Presidential activities in conflict with the Constitution. As you can imagine, Aart is working hard to keep up with all the wild stuff going on with that situation. Come and join Aart for the latest on that.

2 Petitions found at GFR next Tuesday evening:

We the People Amendment:
On February 22, 2019, members of the U.S. House of Representatives lead by Pramila Jayapal (WA-07), joined Move to Amend by announcing their sponsorship of the “ We the People Amendment ,” (H.J.Res.48 – Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States providing that the rights extended by the Constitution are the rights of natural persons only.) which clearly and unequivocally states that:
1. Rights recognized under the Constitution belong to human beings only, and not to government-created artificial legal entities such as corporations and limited liability companies; and
2. Political campaign spending is not a form of speech protected under the First Amendment making it possible once again for Congress and state governments to institute campaign finance reform.
