Tonight in the Public Square

Today the United States Supreme Court begins its consideration of the constitutionality of Proposition 8, which ended same-sex marriage in California, and DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act), which prohibits federal recognition and benefits for same-sex married couples.

Tonight, Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. in the Public Square (a.k.a. Seventh Street Park), there will be a rally to show diverse support for marriage equality. Speakers for the occasion include married same-sex couples, LGBT activists and leaders, and elected officials, including Hudson mayor William Hallenbeck and Common Council president Don Moore.

The rally in Hudson is part of the United for Marriage: Light the Way to Justice coalition, a group of LGBT and allied organizations rallying in Washington and across the country to show support for marriage equality. Click here for more information about the rally in Hudson. Click here to learn about events happening elsewhere in the country during the Supreme Court hearings on marriage equality.
