Marching past the stadium – many gathering for the games applauded our march. There were few overtly negative reactions aside from two clowns who tried to disrupt our rally, but were rapidly escorted away.

Fix the 'Fix'Demo organizers

“Fix the ‘Fix'” refers to the amendment to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act  that Governor Mike Pence hurriedly enacted after he faced a firestorm of protest over the original law.  As noted by activists in the short film above, the “Fix” is totally inadequate.
