Nationwide 'No on Prop 8' Protest This Saturday

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

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.
