i received this message from one of my readers:
"My name is Nicole and I work with a group called Marriage Equality USA in the San Joaquin County chapter. Our group is spreading the word about the importance of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples and families. We are fighting to secure all the rights that hetero couples get for glbt families here in California. We are having a march in San Francisco on Saturday across the Golden Gate bridge, and there will also be simultaneous marches across the country as well. I have set up a fundraising page for my chapter at www.firstgiving.com/nicandj."
and if you'd like more info on the nationwide marches and other ways to help, go to the url listed in this flyer:
