Indiana Equality Plans "Our Families Count" Rally At Statehouse

Indiana Equality is planning an "Our Families Count" rally for this Thursday, February 9, 2006 at the Indiana State House from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The rally has been prompted by the recent spate of legislation aimed at relegating Indiana's GLBT community to second-class status according to the group. A 2-hour crash course in lobbying the legislature as a constituent is also being offered from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Christ Church Cathedral on Monument Circle. A $5 voluntary donation is being requested to cover the program's costs. For more information click here.

As an avid reader of this blog, I strongly urge all my fellow readers to attend this rally. We need to show the General Assembly that we will not be cowed by the Religious Right and Eric Miller's Advance America.

Just as hundreds of Hoosiers wrote e-mails and called their legislators within 24 hours after the Thompson amendment was introduced, hundreds will descend upon the statehouse atrium on Thursday to protest this ongoing series of attacks.

Will you be there? Or will you accept second-class citizenship for some Hoosiers?
