GLBT folks: Get a free sticker to attach to your census return to encourage them to count us

[Text from queerthecensus.org follows.]

The census is not necessarily the topic you've been waiting to hear about, I know, but bear with me for a moment.

It's coming up in March or April, and while it's supposed to be an accurate count of everyone in the country, there's no question that asks if someone is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

This is a huge problem. The data collected has a direct impact on issues that are critical to every American--issues like health care, economic stability, safety. And when LGBT people are not counted, individuals, families, and communities suffer.

The good news is that we can change this. Show your support of a census that counts everyone--say it right on your census envelope with your free Queer the Census sticker! And make sure to sign the petition telling the Census Bureau to make sure everyone is counted.

There are lots of problems with the Census this time around. They only want people to be asking "10 questions," and take "10 minutes." But you know, the chances of getting it all done? Fuggetit.
