PA Diversity Network Executive Director Liz Bradbury and Board President Patricia Sullivan were invited by the staff of Senator Robert Casey's office to join 27 other GLBT activists at a GLBT Civil Rights and Issues Forum in the Dirksen Center of the Capitol in Washington DC, on December 17. PDN Executive Director Liz Bradbury was also asked to help arrange for some GLBT families with children who are involved with GLBT issues to attend this event as well. So PDN Board members Earl and Donnie Snyder, who are leaders of the PDN Rainbow Families group and who write the monthly column Planet Parenthood in the PDN's Valley Gay Press Newspaper, and Dr. Elizabeth Goff, who began the Planet Parenthood Column in 1998, and wrote the column for several years, along with her daughters Willow and Emily Goff, also attended this historic set of events.

Participants in the forum were also invited to special VIP Tours of the Capitol and the White House. The White House especially asked that GLBT families with children be part of the VIP Holiday White House tour, that evening.
