Project Postcard


President-elect Barack Obama has made a lot of promises to the LGBTQ community.  We have to make sure he follows through.  What better way to do it than to send him a friendly little reminder?  Here’s what you do…

BUY A POSTCARD – It would be great if it had the name of your city or state on it, but feel free to get creative.  Make your own, use one that you have around the house, or grab a free one at your local restaurant.  Heck, why not get a bunch of different ones?  The more, the better. 

ADDRESS IT – A handwritten card is always best, but feel free to print out labels if you’re going to send multiple cards.  Here’s the address…

President-elect Barack Obama
Presidential Transition Office

Kluczynski Federal Building

230 S. Dearborn St., 38th Floor

Chicago, IL 60604

WRITE A MESSAGE – I recommend something like this…

Dear President-elect Obama,
Please ask Congress to repeal
D.O.M.A.!  All Americans should have the right to marry.  Thank you in advance for advocating for the civil rights of your LGBT citizens. 

SIGN YOUR NAME – There is nothing more powerful than that.


NOW, REPEAT – Send one a week.  Or better yet, one a day.  Have a postcard party and have all your friends do it too.  Email these instructions to your loved ones so they can join in the fun.  Think of the statement that thousands and thousands of postcards from around the country will make. 

Our friends at Join the Impact have started a great album.  If you’d like to submit a photo of you and your postcard, click here.

Let’s send as many

postcards as we can before
