On March 26, the US Supreme Court will hear arguments in the Prop8 case. This has huge implications not just for LGBT people but all Americans. The questions include whether one group of citizens can vote to take away rights from another group, and whether marriage equality is a fundamental right protected under the US (Federal) Constitution.
While the courts do not take into consideration things like rallies and protests – rallies and protests can sway public opinion. People realize they’re either on the “right” or “wrong” side of history, or feel more emboldened to vote their conscience because they realize – they’re not alone.
For those who feel alone – rallies and speaking out for marriage equality are the most powerful “it get’s better message” possible.
So JOIN US and all those who support marriage equality and OPPOSE second-class citizenship – on March 25 – the night before the arguments in Washington.
