Transcript NATIONAL LESBIANS ORGANIZE Los Angeles lesoi^ns wil1 ^ost a founding convention of the National Lesbian Organize .ion. T\ s 'historic event is set for March 17-19, at the Ramada Inn near the Los Angeles Airport, with Del Martin as keynote speaker to open the convention. Since the success of lesbian recognition at the IWY Conference in Houston in November, energy has been running high in lesbian communities across the country. Convention organizers feel "It is time to move and establish a structure to push forward with plans of action to achieve our goals." They stated, "It is our hope that a national organization will provide lesbians in this country with a visible profile and national political clout." One hundred representatives selected according to geographic regions, will attend the convention. The convention is designed to be small enough to facilitate effective communication, and large enough to allow for a wide representative base, both politically and geographically. Registration will be on a first come first served basis, subject to the following criteria: All delegates will be: A) Lesbian Feminists, B) Have been visibly active in the lesbian movement, C) Support the concept of some form of national lesbian organization and intend to work in or with such an organization, D) Represent organizational diversity, E) Send in their registration coupon and check ($5.00) and receive an official confirmation letter, F) Additionally, to insure that this convention is truly a national one, representatives will be registered according to a regional quota system which is based on the relative amount of known lesbian political activity in that area. Regional co-ordinators are being set up to ensure proper representation and to act as a communication source for delegates in that region. The Southern regional coordinator for the convention is Linda Lovell. The region includes 14 states: Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The Southern region is allotted at least 14 representatives and may possibly have as many as 20. Provisions are also being worked on to provide space for a possible 50 non-voting observers to attend the convention (10 per region) and so a possible 30 women from the South could conceivably attend, and 20 of them could vote. Linda says, "Since the 14 states in the Southern region cover such a large area and I do not, alas, know every lesbian in every state, I am in much need of your help and the help of women in your state. Please help to insure that the Southern region will be fairly represented by sending to me any feedback, whether positive or negative, suggestions or questions you may have." , continued on page 11 10 Pointblank Times
