4/21/2012 LGBTQIA Civil Rights Flash Mob (for those not participating in the global marches/events of same date)

What is it?

A Flash Mob is a large group of people who gather at a public location to perform a pre-defined action and disperse rapidly after the event has concluded.
Flash Mobs are an internet phenomenon of the 21st century. Although Flash Mobs don’t happen online, they are organized using social media, viral emails, or websites in general.

The organizers set up a website, mailing list, and/or a viral message that provides all necessary instructions for potential participants. This of course includes the date, time, and meeting point in the real world, as well as the action to perform.

Purpose of this action:

To allow all LGBTQIA, allies, and others a method of participation on this historic day when communities worldwide take to the streets demanding equality for all with an end to discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other distinctive discriminatory factor.  This action allows an alternative to the already arranged marches and non-march events scheduled worldwide on this date for those not able or wanting to participate in these previously scheduled events for whatever reason.

Organizing your flash mob:

Highly suggest you immediately set up a facebook event page with all the details of your particular action and send out invites utilizing every social networking tool at your disposal and once your location action planning takes hold, notify the International Committee at  ContactUs@letsreachonemillionpeople.com  and we will set up an event page for your flash mob on the official website for the equality events on this historic day.
We will assist you along the way on this exciting way to express your support for total LGBTQIA Equality!

To be included for event day on 4/21/2012:

1.  Action at various locations coordinated to happen simultaneously at 12 noon CST
2.  Action timing 3-5 minutes
3.  Location either common area of large shopping mall or other public gathering venue
4.  Event tied to gaining equality for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity
     while achieving Basic Human/Civil Rights for every single individual on earth
