QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. WHAT IS FREEDOM PROJECT LOS ANGELES?
Freedom Project Los Angeles is a coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to fight
ing discrimination against gay and lesbian people in all walks of life in the spirit of Gandhi and
King. The Freedom Project is committed to the principles of non violence both in words and
action. Our emphasis will be put on efforts to create change within the community, to educate all
people about freedom for gays and lesbians and to move the gay and lesbian community dra
2. WHO SUPPORTS THE FREEDOM PROJECT?
The Foundation for Civil Rights has funded the early stages of the Freedom Project. The Foun
dation is a 501(c)(3) committed to ending discrimination against gay and lesbian people. Partic
ipants in the Project include the members of ANGLE (Access Now For Gay and Lesbian Equal
ity), MCC (The Metropolitan Community Churches) and a growing list of additional businesses,
organizations and individuals.
3. IS THIS A NEW ORGANIZATION?
NO. The Freedom Project is a diverse coalition of people and groups who will work together on
very specific tasks and seek professional assistance, when necessary, to accomplish its goals.
. WHAT KIND OF WORK WILL THE FREEDOM PROJECT BE DOING?
Our first effort will be to focus on UCLA's policy regarding ROTC. We believe it is unaccept
able that in the Los Angeles area, at a prestigious institution of higher learning, there exists a pro
gram that discriminates directly against gay men, lesbians and bisexuals violating the Univer
sity's own non discrimination policy. A university should be a place of tolerance and acceptance,
not a place of discrimination and bigotry.
