Thousands are United for Marriage in advance of Supreme Court Hearings on DOMA and Prop 8
In just two weeks, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider two cases about the freedom to marry. These two cases – which concern the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8 – are fundamentally about whether gay and lesbian Americans can enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities as everyone else.
On March 26 & 27, thousands of people will gather in Washington, DC, for a rally outside of the Supreme Court at 8:30am. There is still time to RSVP. There is even transportation information from select cities (and you can organize a bus trip from your own home town!).
Over 4,000 people have liked the March 4 Marriage Facebook page. Please like and share the information from there.
All people of faith are invited to A Prayer for Love & Justice, an interfaith prayer service, at Church of the Reformation (212 E. Capitol St. NE) on March 26th at 7:30 am. To embody love and summon justice, spiritual traditions of all communities will gather together to highlight the broad-based faith support for marriage equality and the dignity of all souls as a religious value. We will close with a procession of drums, clergy, community and choir to join the United for Marriage Rally at the steps of the Supreme Court.
A Seder, “Parting the Waters: A Seder for Love, Liberation and Justice" will be held at 5:30 PM on March 26 at the Human Rights Campaign. This date not only marks the second day of Passover but also the Prop 8 challenge before the Supreme Court.
GLAAD is actively working with the Respect for Marriage Coalition, as well as with the United for Marriage coordinating team. We are working to bring your voice to DC and make sure you are fully informed. It is time for our nation's highest court to ensure that same-sex couples are treated fairly under the law - and we need you to help make that happen.
Visit www.glaad.org/marriage to learn more and join us in Washington, D.C. on March 26 and 27 to help show America that all Americans deserve to be treated fairly and equally under the law - no matter who they love.
