Please help us spread the word about this monumental undertaking. Thank you! It's time to end gender discrimination!

Into the Light Walk - a walk to end gender discriminationTime: May 31, 2011 at 10pm to May 31, 2012 at 7pm
Location: USA
Organized By: Alan L. Bounville

Event Description:

Into the Light – Beginning in May 2011, a group of walkers will embark upon a journey from the Pacific Northwest of the United States, walking over 3,000 miles to Washington DC. The walkers will hold numerous candle light vigils along the trek at the specific places where people have been murdered or have taken their own lives due to gender expression/identity discrimination or bias. Providing gender expression/identity workshops and civil disobedience trainings along the way and theatrical performances inspiring people to walk into their own light and true potential, this 9-18 month journey will help raise up more voices in the effort for full social and legislative equality.
Leading up to and during the journey, the Into the Light walking team is asking for donations that will cover the team’s basic expenses. And, 10% of every dollar raised will go directly to other charitieswhose missions are aligned with the purpose of this walk – to end gender discrimination.
