The Savannah River Site Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual Employees (GLOBE) is seeking help.
Senator DeMint’s office has been bombarded with contacts and letters from enraged employees of the Savannah River Site. They are angry concerning our recent Gay Pride Program at SRS conducted as part of a larger year long Diversity Program. This is the 2nd year SRS GLOBE has conducted a program. Last year GLOBE used (Charleston-based educational non-profit) AFFA’s ‘We are your Neighbors’ video in the program. This year’s focus was on developing a place that is free of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Senator DeMint may approach DOE Secretary Bodman’s office with these complaints. It is critical that Senator DeMint’s office receive some supportive contacts concerning this program. The Senators’ contact information, and a suggested draft letter and additional talking points are below. Please act quickly and modify the letter as appropriate for your situation. If you’d like more information about our program and surrounding press, check out www.srsglobe.org.
