Statewide Protest Rescheduled

Tomorrow's rally for equality on statehouse grounds has been rescheduled to January 31st at 1:30pm due to inclement weather. Some parts of the state are expecting upwards of 2 feet of snow, and 6 inches are expected in Columbus...

... it would be difficult to scream and shout when we're knee high in snow. LOL

From Cameron Tolle of IMPACTCincinnati:
Due to weather conditions across the state, Saturday's statewide rally for equality has been rescheduled for Saturday January 31st at 1:30 [it will still be occurring in Columbus at the statehouse]. Please help us to get the word out about the new date!

Though its unfortunate that we will not be able to rally tomorrow, this only gives us more time to spread the word even more throughout Ohio. Be on the look out in the upcoming days as to how you can help organizing and promotional efforts in your community!

Furthermore, in light of the rally's conjunction with Join the Impact events occurring nationwide, it is still crucial for Ohio to do its part in ensuring that Barack Obama fulfills his promises to the LGBTQ community. Join the Impact has been gathering 1,000,000 signatures on a nation wide letter to Barack Obama and will continue to do so until January 12th.

Equality Ohio and the Human Rights Campaign are asking every Ohioan to sign the national letter to president elect Obama to make sure that LGBTQ and allied voices in Ohio are heard! Print the letter and signature pages and ask your family, friends, and neighbors to sign for equality. Together, we will effectively remind president elect Obama of his campaign promises to the LGBTQ community prior to his inauguration as the 44th president of the United States.
