The good folks at Marriage Equality are hosting an “Eve of Justice” rally Wednesday March 4th at 5:30PM on Olivera street. Literally this is the evening before the start of the Supreme Courts hearing oral arguments challenging the validity of Prop 8.
Attend. Make your voice heard on this important social issue.
DEETS: March 4th, 5:30-8 PM Olvera Street between N. Main and N. Alameda (2 blocks for Union Station) in LA.
If you are facebook enabled you can get more details and RSVP HERE. Otherwise you can make the jump to the press release from the Marriage Equality folks.
Marriage Equality USA is organizing these events across the state and a few other places in the country, so if you aren’t in L.A., that’s no excuse! Go to http://www.eveofjustice.com/ And check it out for a location near you!
The Eve of Justice: Lighting the way for the Supreme Court is an opportunity to inspire hope, and change hearts and minds the night before oral arguments on Prop 8’s validity begin.
This event will open at 5:30 pm, March 4th on picturesque Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles.
As Californians—families and friends will gather to express that equal marriage rights are vital to our lives and community. It is wrong to take away basic rights from a minority group at the ballot box. One of the highlights will be a re-commitment ceremony of married couples by Civic Leaders. Between musical acts and personal stories we will hear from a diversity of faith leaders. And, as dusk turns into night, the one-thousand-plus attending the “Eve of Justice” will join together lighting and holding candles to demonstrate in one image how united we stand.

(In L.A., try to take the subway…there are convenient stops and lousy parking at the location. And don’t forget to bring your candles!)
