Transgender Coalition Protest HRC

By Janice CovingtonIn the weeks leading up to the Demonstration, I requested a meeting with Joe Solmonese so that I could see first hand what kind of individual I was up against.

Janice Covington commented on Vanessa Edwards Foster's blog post 'Here We Go Again: IFGE Elects HRC’s Allyson Robinson To The Board'
"I agree. Allyson Robinson is acting as an agent of HRC. This is classic of HRC's win back program to infiltrate as many Transgender organizations as possible. In my opinion the reason is all about the dollar. For the last past year they have…"
