OUR ORGANIZATION has formally endorsed the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) National Equality March on Washington, October 11, 2009, in Washington, D.C. calling for “Equal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states.” There will be multiple events planned throughout the weekend and we hope that you will visit their website to learn more www.nationalequalitymarch.com
Like the march organizers, we feel that LGBT people are members of every race, class, faith and community. We see the struggle for LGBT equality as part of a larger movement for peace and social justice. We want to take this opportunity to encourage our members and allies to go to the National Equality March Web site at www.equalityacrossamerica.org and sign up to help mobilize for and attend this grass-roots demonstration for civil rights for all LGBT people. We are also attaching a flyer that may be used in your efforts to help organize others to join us in DC.
Whatever your sexual orientation or gender identity may be, the best way to ensure that all of our struggles for social and economic justice progress - we must stand together in solidarity. As the old labor slogan so aptly expresses, “An Injury to One is an Injury to All.” Please, plan to march in DC on October 11, 2009 at 12 noon and stand in solidarity with us at the National Equality March rally at 2pm on the West Lawn of the US Capitol, that same day.
