Policy Matters — 16 January 2014 (announcements from PFLAG National Offices)

PFLAG-PolicyMattersThis information comes to us from the National PFLAG organization:

TAKE ACTION
Early next month, PFLAG National–as a member of the ENDA Coalition and supporter of the Americans for Workplace Opportunity (AWO) ENDA Campaign–will begin a special, targeted effort to bring an inclusive ENDA to the House floor for a vote.

PFLAG National’s Lobby Day was the last organizational advocacy effort before the historic, successful Senate vote in 2013; we know that PFLAGers’ unique family voices made a difference. We still have time in the 113th Congress to move ENDA forward, and we’ll be working for its passage this year. No one sends the family message as effectively as PFLAGers, so be ready to take action as this effort gets underway.

Learn more about ENDA–as well as PFLAG’s other workplace equality efforts–at pflag.org/workplacefairness.

Request to participate in research survey

This comes from Russ Phillips (mywholelifestudy@gmail.com), University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg:

I realize this is a little unorthodox but please take the time to read over what we have to say, as we feel like we have a chance to go present this information to a national board of psychologists, advocating for LGBT rights!

Would you be willing to pass on the information for a current psychological study?

My name is Nicholas. I am a research assistant for Dr. Russ Phillips at the University of Pittsburgh. We are interested in advocating for LGBQ rights, hoping you might mention our action research. Our confidential survey, “My Whole Life,” explores all aspects of well-being (physical, mental, spiritual, social) in persons who experience same-sex attractions. Our website also reviews research on persons with same-sex attractions (to dispel harmful myths) and lists resources for persons with same-sex attractions. We hope our research will further explicate the needs and resources and eliminate harmful myths about persons who are attracted to others of the same sex.

We have attached a flyer and are asking if you’d be willing to share the flyer with members of your organization. Also, if you have an email list, we would appreciate it if you might forward our email to your organization members.

Persons can take the survey at http://upgsurvey.pitt.edu/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=74K1no6

The informational website is www.greensburg.pitt.edu/academics/psychology/my-whole-life-study

Anyone age 18 and older who is attracted to persons of the same gender is eligible to take the survey. We are approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board as a study respective of participants’ rights. The survey is confidential – we do not ask for names. We recommend that participants use Firefox as the online survey sometimes locks up on Chrome or Internet Explorer.

We thank you for your time! Feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions!

Sincerely,
Nicholas Drop and Dr. Russell Phillips
