Lift Your Voice for Marriage Equality
United for Marriage Rally
March 26, 2013
On March 26-27, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider landmark cases that will determine if LGBT Americans will enjoy the freedom and equality under the law that is every American’s birthright. These deliberations are coming amid a dramatic change in public opinion about marriage equality for LGBT people with more than half of Americans favoring marriage rights for same-sex couples according to a December poll by Gallup. The United States of America is ready for marriage equality.
As the nation’s highest court begins its deliberations of these cases, Metropolitan Community Churches and the Global Justice Institute are joining LGBT and allied organizations, faith and grassroots leaders, and social justice and religious associations from across the country in rallying at the steps of the Supreme Court to tell our stories and make our voices heard about the fundamental right and freedom to marry.
Please join us for this historical moment by helping us demonstrate our strong support for marriage equality for all Americans, whether in Washington, DC or in your own community. In addition to the rally at the U.S. Supreme Court, more than 100 local leaders and organizations are organizing rallies, vigils, observances, and prayer services in their local areas to highlight their support for marriage equality for LGBT people.
Can we count you in? There are three ways you can get involved:
Come rally with us outside the Supreme Court in Washington, DC on March 26th and 27th: http://bit.ly/UnitedForMarriageRally

Whether you attend the rally in Washington, DC or in your local area, wear red to show your support for freedom and equality.
Every action and every event we organize in support of marriage equality will bring us a step closer in making freedom and equality a reality for all people. Several MCC’s have already committed to lifting their voices on behalf of marriage equality within their own communities:
*MCC Hartford, Hartford, CT
*MCC New Haven, New Haven, CT
*Sunshine Cathedral, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
*Trinity MCC, Gainesville, FL
