My friend Will Welch received this in the mail from UniWyo Federal Credit Union. It’s a laminated newspaper clipping of him, my husband Andrew, and other equality activists marching with GetEqual WY for equal rights for GLBTQ people on the day Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed. 
The enclosed note reads:

"Will,
Thanks for all you do in our community. Keep up the good work!
Your Friends at UniWyo FCU”

Will wrote that UniWyo did the same thing on Valentines day. He said, “They sent me a laminated copy of the picture in the paper with a note saying, ‘We thought you might like to have this as a keepsake.’ It’s stuck in the frame of a painting in my livingroom with the note. It’s a picture of me and Alex dressed up holding our flowers asking for marriage licenses at the courthouse.”
And this, my friends, is yet another reason to move your money to an institution that gives a damn about the community. For more information on how do that, since Move Your Money day is tomorrow, visit the Move Your Money Project.
