A peaceful protest march aimed at expressing opposition to the passage of Prop 8 is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in East Los Angeles. The "Marcha Somos Familia: We are Family" event has been organized by Lambda Legal, and will begin at 10 a.m. at the corner of N. Soto St. and E. Cesar Chavez Ave in the city of Los Angeles and will stop 2.6 miles way at Belvedere Park in unincorporated East Los Angeles. According to their press release, the march's "purpose is not only to publicly express [their] disapproval of all forms of constitutional discrimination but to encourage dialogue and love among the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and heterosexual friends and family members. The march is a first for the predominantly Latino community living in the East Los Angeles area."
