More pictures from Chamberlain

We're at it today, with facilitator Michael Mitchell. We're talking about the political landscape of South Dakota, what our strengths are, what our weaknesses are, and also got a quick history of GLBT activism in South Dakota (nicely summarized by Lawrence Novotny, who has been there all along).

Cait Collier has given us a great summary of 501c3s, c4s and PACs. We also talked about boards of directors and how they function. This is ground zero and square one and really exciting (unlike actually being on a board!)

Here is my sweet bride, talking with Jon Hoadley, formerly director of the No on C Campaign with South Dakotans Against Discrimination, now with the Gill fund. It is great to have him here to provide some national perspective. (Mike Mitchell has been helpful on that too, as he has done a lot of GLBT related political work in other states.)

This is square one and and ground zero. Pretty heady stuff.
