Nationwide 'No on Prop 8' Protest This Saturday

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

This past week we've watched on the news, joined in, and/or supported in spirit all the "No on Prop 8" protests around Southern California. But this Saturday, we will have a chance to come together once again, this time as a nation, to show the world that we believe everyone is entitled to marry the one that they love regardless of sexual orientation. California wasn't the only state to vote down equal rights for all citizens; Florida and Arizona had also banned gay marriages this election (Arkansas passed a measure barring gay couples from adopting).

On November 15 at 10:30 am PST/1:30pm EST, Prop 8 protesters will meet on the steps of local city halls, state capitols and the U.S. capitol -- from L.A. to Portland, Maine. Bring your signs, your voices, and your spirit.
