The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance has launched its much-anticipated Family Matters project! Ricci Levy, Woodhull’s Executive Director, announced the launch of the project during her opening remarks at the Sexual Freedom Summit in Washington, DC. The website’s mission statement says it all, and says it beautifully:
Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance’s Family Matters project is dedicated to advancing, respecting and protecting the fundamental human right to family by eliminating discrimination based on family structure and relationship choices. This project will raise public awareness of family diversity through the sharing of stories and research using social media, provide education about human rights at conferences and public events, and facilitate collaboration with other organizations to draft and promote model policies and legislation preventing discrimination based on family form.
Family in 2012 takes many forms. Some families are legally recognized and socially respected. Others are not. All families face challenges and all families matter.
If you would like to share your family for inclusion in the Family Matters project, submit your information on their site.
