Design SLDN’s New Tee

ChatterBlast is helping the organization celebrate its 20th anniversary

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) has been helping end discrimination of LGBT military members for almost two decades. And to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the advocacy group, Philly-based ChatterBlast Media, has introduced a nationwide contest to help design a new T-shirt starting today.

To enter, all you have to do is visit SLDN’s Facebook page. There’s no limit on how many designs a person submits. The winner will be chosen via Facebook votes and announced at SLDN’s Twentieth Annual National Dinner (March 3) in Washington, D.C. This will be he first SLDN national dinner since the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” last September, and the event will mark the kickoff of a year-long celebration of the organization’s anniversary. SLDN was founded shortly after DADT was enacted.

“This is an exciting time to be an advocate for full LGBT equality in the military, and we are thrilled to invite SLDN’s supporters to get involved in helping us design the t-shirt that will commemorate this anniversary year,” says Army Veteran and SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis.

The winning T-shirt will be available for sale via SLDN’s web site and will be used to raise money at events across the country through 2012.

The contest begins today, with submissions accepted through Feb. 13. Voting will take place online (Feb. 14 – 24). For the full contest rules and to enter, click here.
