Monday, March 25, 6:00pm, US Customs House
On March 26 and 27, 2013, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments about the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8, two cases that are fundamentally about whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans should have the freedom to marry.
The Alliance for Full Acceptance (AFFA) is sponsoring a rally on the eve of the hearings, joining other local organizations and rallies in 35 states across the country to demonstrate in support of equality and freedom to marry for LGBT people. The rally will bring LGBT people and fair-minded Americans together to shine a light on the broad support for marriage equality from coast to coast.
This peaceful and civil demonstration will be held at 6:00 PM on Monday, March 25, 2013 on the steps of the U.S. Custom House at East Bay and Market Streets in downtown Charleston. The event is free and open to the public. All LGBT people and allies who believe in equality and justice are encouraged to attend.
The South Carolina Green Party and Charleston Green Party are co-sponsors of this event.
