Fairness Fund, 1986-1988 [subseries]:
Steve Endean created the Fairness Fund (FF) in December 1986 to fight right-wing amendments in Congress and encourage positive federal legislation relevant to the gay and lesbian community by providing overnight constituent mail to national political leaders. FF fund staff wrote the text for letters and mailgrams and arranged to have them delivered on behalf of concerned individuals. FF tried to capitalize on the large crowd at the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. These records include organizational vital records (including article of incorporation, bylaws, and the 1988 merger documents), FF board meeting documents, and correspondence.
