Queer the 2010 Census!

Did you know LGBT's and our families are invisible in the US Census? Sign this petition to queer the census. You can even get a free "Queer the Census" sticker to mail in with your 2010 census questionnaire. Here's why this is important:

LGBT people are invisible in the census, which is THE survey that is designed to accurately reflect the diverse reality of America's population. The data collected has a direct impact on issues that are critical to every American – issues like health care, economic stability and safety. When LGBT people are not counted, individuals, families and communities suffer.
