Citizen Space, 425 2nd Street, 3rd floor, San Francisco, CA 94107

What is EqualityCamp’s goal?

• An inclusive, inspiring, integrated (web and on-the-ground) movement…

• with a clear, central gathering place online…

• with feedback loops to empower a grassroots movement that integrate with any formal campaign.

Who will attend?

Anyone who wants to help achieve the goal. From web 2.0 leaders to people who only use the Net for email, from gay/lesbian/bi/trans/queer citizens who want their full equality to straight allies. People we haven’t yet thought of. You.

Well there is none that I am aware of in NY at the moment, although there was a camp equality in NY a few months ago, I am sure HRC will hold another.
