End LGBT Discrimination in Idaho!

Idahoans For Fairness Idaho Women's Network TrainingThe Idaho Women’s Network will be holding a training for people interested in volunteering for the small business outreach project for Idahoans for Fairness.

What is Idahoans for Fairness (IFF)?

IFF was a group that emerged after the 2009 legislative session, when the Senate State Affairs Committee voted 5-2 against voting to print an amendment to the Idaho Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination against sexual orientation and gender identity. We realized that if they refused to even make our proposal part of public record, we were going to have to build support on the ground with the voters and constituents of our legislators. Many Idahoans don’t even realize that it is still legal to fire someone just because they are gay. Please see the attached brochure for more information.

The small business outreach training:

This training is very specifically designed for people who want to get involved with Idahoans for Fairness and volunteer to do small business outreach in their area. We will be going into small businesses and asking about their policies and experiences. We hope that will want to sign our petition and maybe even place our logo in their store front window.

When: The training will be Wednesday, July 29th. (Yes, this is a different day from we were originally going to hold it) from 6-8 PM at the Community Center (TCC) 305 E 37th Street in Garden City off Chinden Blvd. This is a tentative location, we confirm in our reminder e-mail.

Cost: The training is free, but a $5 donation will be appreciated to help with the cost of food (Dinner is provided).

RSVP: to tmagrini@idahowomensnetwork.org or call 208-344-5738

Note: Most of our initial trainings are in the Treasure Valley, but we will eventually be bringing this project to other places in the state. Let me know if you are interested in this or other trainings by sending an e-mail to Taryn at tmagrini@idahowomensnetwork.org.
