RMN Team Postcard Campaign

From Ann Teich, Southwest Texas Conference RMN Team (annteich@austin.rr.com):As a follow up to the Love Your Neighbor Workshop on January 14, we invite you to participate in a postcard writing campaign to General Conference delegates from the Southwest Texas Conference.  We ask that you hand write short messages on postcards to 4 different General Conference delegates, either asking them to work towards full inclusion or thanking them for their support of full inclusion of GLBT people in the United Methodist Church.

If you wish to participate in this campaign, the RMN Team will supply you with a postcard template on which you can print your own postcards on card stock, or if you prefer, we can send you some postcards.  We will also provide 2 sample messages that you can use, or you can write your own message, and we will provide you with the names and addresses of 4 General Conference delegates.

Once completed, we would appreciate your placing a stamp on the postcards and mailing them and also letting me know when you have done so.

If you would like to do this, please e-mail me by February 5, 2012.  Once you have responded, I will e-mail you the postcard template or the postcards with the names and addresses of four delegates.

  • If you have a preference as to which delegates (see list below) you’d like to send the cards to, please let me know in your response e-mail.
  • Please let me know if you prefer the template or the postcards.

Thank you again for your work to make the United Methodist Church a fully inclusive church!

P.S.  If you have already volunteered to visit with a GC delegate, you can still participate in this campaign.
