Get ready Rockford! This week we had our first planning meeting for Rockford Pride 2014! The Americans for Workplace Opportunity campaign has been on the ground in Rockford since January organizing to secure Congressman Kinzinger’s YES vote on ENDA when it is called in the US House.
We will be working with local congregations, local businesses and students from Rock Valley College to bring you three days of political action, dancing, feasting and general merriment at Pride. Our event is slated for July 18 to July 20, so mark your calendars now.
