Atticus Circle’s mission is to educate and mobilize straight allies to advance equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender partners, parents and their children.
It is time for us to stand up and stand with our gay and lesbian friends who are being systematically denied the most basic rights and recognition – the very things we, in the heterosexual world, take for granted day after day.
It is time for all children, regardless of their parents’ sexual orientation, to share the same rights and protections.
And it is time for our country to acknowledge that the right to love a partner, be a parent and build a family is a fundamental, equal right for each and every one of us.
Today we need your help to win this “civil rights battle rooted in love.” We need you to add your voice to the growing number of our friends who say, “This just isn’t right.” We invite you to come into the Atticus Circle and stand with others who say, “I’m ready. What can I do?”
