‘Add The Words’ Effort To Get Sticky

Things are about to get sticky at the Idaho Statehouse. A group of Idaho residents want to see the words "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" added to the state's laws prohibiting discrimination in employment, housing and education. They call their campaign "Add the Words, Idaho" and they're using sticky notes to make their point. So far for this year's legislative session, Add the Words volunteers say they have collected hundreds of sticky notes to lawmakers from more than 50 different Idaho towns. Add the Words volunteers will begin placing sticky notes on the doors of the House and Senate chambers today, as the 2012 legislative session begins/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you support the "Add the Words" campaign?
