Before Stonewall relates the history
of the gay rights movement in America before the Stonewall riots of 1969. The film presents the
dramatic story of the sometimes horrifying public and private existences experienced by gay and
lesbian Americans since the 1920s. It provides a decade by decade history of homosexuality through amazing historical footage and interviews. I found the film extremely informative and
certainly timely with the current struggle over don't ask don't tell, and gay marriage. This excellent
piece was the winner of 2 Emmy Awards. You will not want to miss this one.
The following is the agenda for the business meeting:
1) Update on the One Nation Working Together regional meeting in Dallas Oct 2, 2010.
2) Billboard status.
3) T-shirt committee formation.
4) New Years Eve candlelight vigil.
5) Legislative action: Phone speed dial for President Obama.
6) Open forum. (after film).
7) Afghanistan poem.

as the nation seemingly plunges further into darkness, please help keep a light shining from the
peace movement. see you there.
