Video: Add the Words Campaign Stopped at Idaho Capitol

Posted By on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 2:33 PM

Idaho's "Add the Words" campaign, a volunteer organization looking to support the state's gay, lesbian and transgender community, assembled at the State Capitol Monday, positioned for their sticky-note activism.

Armed with multi-colored sticky notes, the volunteers tacked the slips of paper, on which were written pleas for state lawmakers to add the words "sexual orientation and gender identity" to Idaho's Human Rights Act, on the doors of the state's lawmakers.

But they were met by the Idaho State Police, who in a video filmed by the organization, told them the sticky notes wouldn't be allowed. There's also a clip of a Capitol employee quickly removing the sticky notes from the glass window of a door.

See the video below. In it, Mistie Tolman with Add the Words speaks with Idaho State Police at the 1:59 mark.
