Light the Way to Justice in Tampa Bay!
Tuesday Mar 26, 2013 6:30pm-9:30pm in Tampa Bay
This event is a work in progress, and will be updated as we go along, so stay tuned!

Join GetEQUAL FL at the RL Timberlake Federal Building, 600 Zack Street in Tampa as we light the way for equality with a peaceful, non violent vigil. Candles and signs will be provided.

On March 26th & 27, 2013 the Supreme Court of the United States of America (SCOTUS) will be listening to oral arguments on the constitutionality of The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA states that marriage is between one man and one woman, but now it is our time to show the depth of equality and justice for all. Help us plan, organize and take action by bearing witness to OUR right to the pursuit of happiness. Celebrate this historic event and take action - organize, NOW! If you would like to be part of history, be on the steps of YOUR LOCAL FEDERAL COURTHOUSE, at any time during this 48 hour span. We need a presence on the steps of the SCOTUS AND each Federal courthouse or building in each state in this great Nation. Choose a leader to lead this locally and DO IT!!! This is not a march, a fight or a demonstration - this is a peaceful show of solidarity, a stand for LOVE, not hate. Make signs to hold, bring candles and help show our desire to be equal. History is in the making and it is time to bring America into the 21st century. Let's give people hope and create change by using the voice of the people. Call on our veterans, back to the days of MLK, Harvey Milk, Cesar Chavez, Alice Paul and many other allies and advocates who have fought to create change through action - this is a grassroots movement. Will you join us?
