All of these rallies are grassroots and local leaders from many organizations are helping to make sure they're lawful and positive.
Remember our goal is peaceful protest do not be swayed by the yes people to engage with them That is when emotions escalate we are making our position visible to the masses with each rally.

Stand Up to Youth Suicide Rally and March in San Francisco on Friday, Oct 8.
Either the banning of same-sex marriage will be viewed by this court to be unconstitutional
and once again it will be legal for same-sex adults to attain a marriage license in the state
UPHOLD PROP 8
The law which had caused so much controversy and millions of dollars on both sides spent to
repeal or uphold will continue to be the law of the land. One way or another one thing is
certain, the ruling will be appealed and the case will continue to the Federal Court of
Appeals before possibly heading the Unites States Supreme Court.
Planners of the “D-Day” event are encouraged by early indications that the possibility of the
decision on their side is high. With hope that they are right, plans are being formed to close
down 20th street between K and L streets, which happens to be the block the Sacramento Gay
and Lesbian Center is located, for a celebration.
Watch for information on when the official announcement will be made and show up at 20th and
K Streets - for a party to celebrate our win and the repeal of Prop 8! If we happen to lose we
will have a candle light march and vigil at the West Steps of the State Capitol.
The leadership of Sacramento’s Equality Action NOW, a local, grassroots civil rights organization
and the Sacramento Gay and Lesbian Center are planning to respond to whatever ruling Judge
Vaughn Walker decides in the case. As of this writing there are no indications when the ruling
will take place. Organizers are preparing for any day or time it could be announced but the
general thinking is the decision will not be made before this weekend’s San Francisco’s Gay
Pride events or even prior to July 4th, Independence Day.
To volunteer email tina@equalityactionNOW.org. We need DJ's, Entertainers, Bottled Water,
Soda, balloons and helium, decorations and party hats - and you!
If you are a LGBTQI group in Sacramento bring your swag and tables to hand out information and
join the party.
Thank you to our sponsors! Without their generous contributions and commitment to continuing Harvey's fight for human equality, none of these events would be possible.
