‘Add The Words’ Protesters Return

Hundreds of good-natured “Add the Words” protesters are now ringing the Idaho state Capitol rotunda on all four floors. Many are carrying small, hand-lettered signs saying, “Add the Words,” or other hand-lettered signs decrying discrimination. Unlike earlier protests, today's protesters aren't wearing matching T-shirts or holding their hands over their mouths to signify that they aren't being heard. The protesters want the words “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” added to the Idaho Human Rights Act, which now forbids discrimination based on race, religion, disability and other factors, but not on those/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
