We are pleased, actually thrilled and honored, to announce all the wonderful people who are joining Truth in Progress as national advisors. Our work is not done in a vacuum, TiP is here to serve the larger equality movements. Our advisors will make sure we are interwoven into the national work for change on LGBT and racial justice issues. Plus we have the added creativity of filmmakers, activists, authors, spiritual directors, and politicians. There are others that will be joining the panel, but here are the names of this illustrious group! Remember though, every reader and viewer is an advisor, an active participant in shaping Truth in Progress. Jody Huckaby, executive director, PFLAG, Washington, D.C.
