Washington DC — Thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender grassroots activists and straight allies will be in Washington D.C. on October 10th and 11th to demand full and equal protection for LGBT people in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
“This March will be the first step toward a larger goal of bridging the gap between the national LGBT organizations and grassroots community organizers and creating a national movement in all 435 congressional districts to demand of our elected representatives full equality under the law,” said Cleve Jones, national co-chair of the March.
The National Equality March started with a call to action by David Mixner, who urged Jones and Torie Osborn to work with new and emerging leaders to plan this event and bring diverse communities together in support of equality.
“We will come to Washington with new strategies and new messages to build our movement,” said Jones.
