Washington DC, USA: David Mixner and Cleve Jones Call for Marriage Equality Rally at Supreme Court

Written by scott on January 31st, 2013

US Supreme CourtThe Advocate reports that two giants of the gay rights movement are calling for a rally at the Supreme Court on the two days of hearings for Prop 8 and DOMA:

If you can be in Washington, D.C., there will be peaceful and civil demonstrations of support for the cases at the Supreme Court on March 26 and 27. While there, you can also visit your members of Congress to lobby for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and Uniting American Families Act as well as marriage equality. Our opponents will be marching — ignore them.

They also call for simultaneous rallies in all 50 states:

For those who cannot travel, there will be local organizing opportunities and plans under way in all 50 states that will mirror the events before the Supreme Court. Stay tuned. Visit your representatives’ local district offices. Hold teach-ins, campus rallies and town halls. Involve our allies in women’s organizations, the labor movement, racial and ethnic minorities and immigrant communities.

I think it’s a great idea to make our presence known outside the court – the anti-gay forces shouldn’t be the only ones the Justices see when they arrive at court those two mornings.
