Add the Four Words Idaho are a peaceful group of demonstrators determined to see the legislature vote to add four words, “sexual orientation, gender identity” to Idaho’s fair employment, housing, education & public accommodation law.
To date over ninety individuals have been arrested as they silently stood hand over mouth in the Idaho State Capitol in a stance intended to represent how the legislature’s failure to even hold a public hearing has silenced the stories of gay and transgender people in Idaho. Add the Word For Idaho participants are trained in non-violent civil disobedience training. They are determined to be silent, peaceful, respectful, and focused. Of those who have been arrested, four are clergy, 13 are straight, 6 are transgender, one is 80 years old, 5 are high school students and the number includes people with disabilities, people who face discrimination on the basis of race or ethnicity, people who have been victims of hate crimes, have despaired & attempted suicide, have had to hide who they are to get basic services from doctors, landlords, hotels & state agencies. It is time for the Idaho legislature to finally add the words & say discrimination & cruelty is wrong! The money form this event goes towards covering the bail and fines incurred by the people participating. Bail for one person costs $65.00.
Stop by any time in the evening for music, conversation, hope, and determination.
