Fairness Campaign has endorsed the National Equality March, set to take place on October 11th, 2009 in Washington, D.C. The march, sparked by the long-time activist and Harvey Milk confidant Cleve Jones, is set to be one of the biggest events this year targeting gay and lesbian rights.
The march will be one of a kind, with various groups and progressive organizations from legislative districts around the country joining together to demand equal protection in every area of civil law. The event will deal with a wide range of issues, from the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the repeal of Donít Ask, Donít Tell, adoption rights, Hate Crimes legislation and more. The march is being put together by Equality Across America, a new community organizing group focused on GLBTQ rights. The goal: declaring equal rights for all.
