A Lot Like You

A Film by Eliaichi Kimaro

ALLY Reaches the White House!!!

June 24, 2010

Connie Burk (the NW Network Exec. Dir. and ALLY Exec. Producer) received an invitation to attend a White House reception in honor of GLBT Pride.  And guess who she invited as her “plus one?”   !!!?!?!?

Our whirlwind trip to DC was nothing short of amazing.  Connie wrote a fabulous piece, detailing our adventures, complete with shoe drama, a recap of Obama’s address, and some impressive networking we squeezed in with senior White House officials.  I will be writing a more detailed account of our White House soon…

We gifted a copy of A Lot Like You to President Obama, and were able to get a few extra copies into the hands of a long time domestic violence colleague of Connie’s—now the White House Advisor on Violence Against Women.  WOW!!! 

While we were there, I popped my head into the White House movie theater.  Very deluxe indeed.  Hope to make it back there in the coming year for a private screening…
