Supporters of equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans from every race, class, faith and community are mobilizing for a National Equality March on October 11, 2009, in Washington, D.C. The single demand of the march is clear: “Equal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states. We will accept no less and will work until it is achieved.
The march is being organized by Equality Across America, a grassroots network dedicated to organizing in all 435 Congressional Districts to achieve full equality. There will be multiple events planned throughout the weekend and we hope that you will visit our website to learn more, http://www.nationalequalitymarch.com.
