On National Freedom to Marry Day, Thursday, February 12, 2009, at local marriage counters in cities all over the country, same-sex couples will request marriage licenses at their local County Clerk's Offices to raise awareness of the harms and impact that the inability to marry causes on their families. This national event is hosted yearly by Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA) and this year they have asked Join the Impact for our help to make this their largest Marriage Counter Action yet!
Let's keep the momentum going! Join the Impact Chicago, along with the GLN, is sponsoring this year's Freedom To Marry Day Protest on Saturday, February 14th (Valentine's Day).
Here are the details:
National Freedom to Marry Day Protest
Satruday, February 14
118 N. Clark (City Hall)
The demonstration begins at 11, and then as a group we will go down to the Marriage License Bureau and demand that it issue marriage licenses to those same-sex couples who want them. In doing so, we will be joining in Freedom to Marry Week activities happening across the nation.
Bring your cameras and videocameras! We want this action publicized as much and as fast as possible.
Our canvassing committee is working on a flyer as we speak. If you are interested in canvassing for Freedom to Marry Day, please contact Nik (firstname.lastname@example.org), Stephen (email@example.com), Patrick (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Drew (email@example.com).
