"On the two year anniversary of marriage equality in California, we will gather once again in support of love, justice and equality on the steps of a courthouse as we listen to the closing arguments in the federal court case challenging Proposition 8," said Molly McKay, MEUSA Media Director.

"Our gathering will highlight the testimony presented in this case which demonstrates the lack of any basis or evidence in support of Proposition 8 other than impermissible bias and discrimination and remain visible and tell our stories until all loving, committed couples have the right to marry the person they love.”

"No other group in American society has been targeted by more ballot measures than the gay Americans," said Pamela Brown, MEUSA Policy Director. "The federal trial on Proposition 8 allowed marriage equality supporters and opponents to put their best evidence and witnesses under oath and we believe this case clearly shows that Proposition 8 stems from discrimination, leads to discrimination and should be overturned.

"We hope Judge Walker will decide it is unconstitutional for a slim majority voters to strip constitutional rights from a historically discriminated group and write an exception into the constitution," said Molly McKay, MEUSA Media Director. "Our morning gathering will allow supporters to come together and share the fellowship of courage, hope and strength and send a cheer for equality to the parties, organizations and attorneys involved in this important moment in our civil rights history. Couples and supporters are encouraged to join us and bring your marriage licenses, photos of your weddings and personal stories to share."

For those of you that can make it to San Franicsco, the hearing will be held in the Plaza of the Phillip Burton Building, at 450 Golden Gate Ave. in San Francisco. Coffee will be served.
