Freedom to Marry Day 2009

The stakes are high as key California court decision draws near.

Let's keep up the momentum to win marriage equality! In March the California Supreme Court will hear oral arguments over whether or not to junk the anti-gay Proposition 8 and legally restore California same-sex marriages. Their decision is expected within 90 day after that.

While they rarely admit it, courts frequently respond to public pressure. You can help build the pro-gay momentum - and sway the court's decision - by making this year's Freedom to Marry Day protest (aka Valentine's Day) the biggest yet.

In Chicago we will gather at 11 AM Sharp, Saturday February 14th across the street from Daley Plaza (118 N. Clark Street) and as a group go to the Cook County Marriage License Bureau and demand that it issue marriage licenses to those same-sex couples who want them. In doing so we will be joining in Freedom to Marry Week activities happening across the nation.

So email, Facebook, twitter your friends to BE THERE:

11 AM Sharp

Saturday, February 14th

118 N. Clark Street, Chicago.
