The chorus will join hundreds of members of women's choruses from around the country in "Festival", a bi-annual gathering of choruses.

To empower their participation in the election of feminist candidates, to encourage them to run for office and to decide and establish our own agenda based on feminist principles and issues. This is meant to be a grassroots (radical) effort to organize women as activists within and without existing party structures, or by forming new ones. Strategies include precinct organizing, voter registration, lobbying, organizing the delegate selection process, campaign activism and coalition building. An organizing June 16 to concerning meet the There was interests should establish, being motivated by Domestic Violence, and 21.06 were concerns.

REPORT ON TEXAS LESBIAN CONFERENCE by Deborah Bell The Second Annual Texas Lesbian Conference held in Houston the weekend of June 2 through 4 was a tremendous success, reports Deborah Bell of WOMYNSPACE, one of the sponsoring organizations. "Turnout was not as high as we had expected, but I understand many women had to choose between the conference and the March on Austin," Bell said. The workshops were powerful in line with the conference theme of "Celebrating Our Diversity." Both AMIGA, the other sponsoring organization and WOMYNSPACE were very proud to welcome our sisters to Houston for this event. We had over 70 volunteers, whose work made all the difference and to whom we heartily express our appreciation. Highlights included the presentations by AMIGA and WOMYNSPACE that opened the conference, and the "$1 a dance" fundraiser for The Texas Human Rights Fund. Linda Morales of AMIGA is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against the state of Texas that challenges Article 21.06 of the Penal code, which makes certain same sex practices illegal.
