From Boston to Honolulu, dozens of “Decision Day” rallies to respond to today’s Supreme Court rulings on DOMA and Prop 8 are planned. Sometime just after 10:00 AM today the Supreme Court will hand down its decisions on two landmark, historic marriage cases. This literally will be a momentous day, a day — regardless of what the decisions state — that will change forever our fight for equality.
Whatever the day is — that’s when the rallies will be, regardless of what the decisions state.
GetEQUAL and Marriage Equality USA are hosting United For Marriage: Decision Day, where you can find your local event (we count about 100 right now) or schedule a new one.
“While there was a lot of attention paid to Washington, DC, during the Supreme Court’s oral arguments, Decision Day is about the rest of the country — about the impact that the Supreme Court’s decisions on both the Defense of Marriage Act and on Proposition 8 will have on couples and families across the nation,” the United For Marriage: Decision Day site notes:
“On Decision Day, we’re asking folks across the country to organize local events to help folks interpret the cases, and also to help process the impact that the decisions have on our families and our community.”
“This is not just one march, fight or a demonstration – this is a peaceful display of solidarity and a stand for LOVE, not hate across the nation. History is in the making and it is time to bring America into the 21st century. Let’s give people hope and create change by using the voice of the people!”
