On October 11, 2009, The Upper Delaware GLBT Center will proudly join thousands of Americans when we march on Washington, D.C. to let our elected leaders know that NOW is the time for full equal rights for LGBT people. This march will kick start the national grassroots Equality Across America campaign (http://equalityacrossamerica.org). We will gather. We will strategize. We will march. And we will leave energized and empowered to do the work that needs to be done in every community across the nation.
This march marks a shift in strategy that will secure full equality in all 50 states. Similar to the historic civil rights movement, which in 1963 and 64 made its transition from fighting local battles to winning national victory with the passage of the civil rights act, it is time for that passage for LGBT Americans. Let your voice be heard along with others who believe that our time is NOW.
