The US Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in the two marriage equality cases on March 26 and 27. Equality advocates nationwide will engage in demonstrations at sunset on Monday, March 25th.
Now is the time, once again, to recognize the unique moment before us and to act with the greatest power and intelligence possible.
Join the North Texas LGBT Community as we add our voices to the millions raised across our nation calling for full equality in all matters governed by civil law FOR ALL PEOPLE!
We will gather at 7pm, Monday, March 25th, 2013 in Dallas at the Legacy of Love Monument (Frank H. Caven Memorial Garden) located at the intersection of Cedar Springs and Oaklawn Ave to peacefully rally our support for these crucial cases!
Please bring signs in support of equal rights, pride flags, candles and plenty of friends!
Not able to attend? There is plenty that you CAN do!
-Like, share, post and retweet images and infographics you will see designed to gain broad support for the cases. Post your support for marriage equality in the week leading up to the court cases. Remember that positive portrayals of LGBT Americans go a lot farther and are more effective than efforts to tear down our opponents.
-Visit the editorial boards of your local newspapers and request editorials in support of equality to run during the last week of March. Submit letters to the editor in support of marriage equality.
-Reach out to our many allies within faith communities and organize inter-faith events on Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24.
-Speak to the larger issue of equality, not limited to marriage. We seek equal protection under the law, in all matters governed by civil law, in all fifty states.
-Organize peaceful demonstrations for LGBT equality in every city and town across our country at sunset on Monday, March 25 - the anniversary of the Selma march - to put action to the President's words:
"We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths -- that all of us are created equal -- is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears."
Let the last week of March 2013 be remembered as a time when all of us contributed: LGBT and straight, young and old, Stonewall Democrats and Log Cabin Republicans, socialists and libertarians, people from cities and rural communities, the Human Rights Campaign and GetEqual, equality supporters of all races, faiths and backgrounds. Regardless of our differences, let us come together once again in a united call for equality, community and justice.
Let us remember what Dr. King proclaimed in Montgomery, almost half a century ago: “How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
