UPDATE: Looks like we’re back up and running again. See you all Saturday!
Our Facebook event page has again been attacked. We’re working on it and are confident it will be resolved soon. The march and rally are of course still on for Saturday. Our opponents clearly sense the growing strength of our movement for equality!
Let’s send a message that we will never be silenced and that our love will win out over their hate. Can you call five friends to tell them about our march and rally?
The passage of Proposition 8 has galvanized our community across California and throughout the United States. Equality-minded citizens, gay and straight, are founding a new movement. Let’s keep our momentum growing; we will achieve equality for all!
Thanks for all your hard work everyone!
There is a new poster under Spread the Word! that contains all of the information for our protest on Saturday. Check it out.
We also have gathered some signs that express the positive messages we want to get across. See Make A Statement! for the pdfs. Many are available in both 8.5×11 and 11×17 formats. Here are some images to give you some ideas:
We need volunteers to help out at both the march and the rally on Saturday. Can you help our community organize for equality?
There will be a volunteer training meeting at Rich’s at 1051 University Ave on Thursday, Nov 13 from 7:30pm to 8:30pm.
Volunteers for the march will need to arrive at 6th and Upas at 8:30am on Saturday and work through the beginning of the rally at the County Administration Building at 1pm. If you would like to volunteer, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers need to attend the meeting tomorrow so we can all be on the same page on Saturday.
This site has been up for less than 48 hours, and we’ve already had thousands of visitors. People from around San Diego are standing up for fairness and equality. The media is amazed at the power of our grassroots effort. I want to share a comment from a volunteer:
I’ve texted 156 people today
Emailed everyone in my address book
Posted bulletins from 5 myspace sights that have at least 250 friends each.
I alone, directly have made contact in some form with nearly 1000 people today!
Can you match her dedication to equality? Get the word out, call your friends, make some signs!
See you Saturday at 10am at 6th and Upas!
We have a rally site after our march!
We will be meeting at 6th and Upas at 10am. We will depart promptly at 10:30 and march toward the County Administration Building at 1600 Pacific Highway. At the County Administration Building, we will have a rally for our rights that will begin at 1pm. Here’s a map of our starting and ending sites:
Remember that this is a peaceful march and rally. We are at the County Administration building because that is where marriage licenses are issued. We have a mayor and city council who have consistently supported marriage equality and we are grateful to them for that. We are also not targeting any religious or ethnic group. Our opposition wants our movement to appear divisive. We are going to reclaim and reframe the discussion. We are about gaining equal rights for all and ending bigotry and discrimination. This is a cause every proud American can support!
