Growing pains seen in grassroots work

Local activist Robin McGehee is interviewed in a very interesting article in the Bay Area Reporter:

"On March 26, McGehee said that she and others had a call with Shorter and others from EQCA. The organization had wanted to check in to learn more about Meet in the Middle, and McGehee told the B.A.R. she was asked what she needed.

McGehee said that she explained to them that she was receiving support from the Courage Campaign and – both organizations are helping bus people to the event – and she asked EQCA for financial support.

As of Tuesday afternoon, April 14, McGehee said she hasn’t seen any from the group, which according to the Washington Blade has annual revenue of $24.5 million. EQCA did not provide a budget figure by press time."
