JoinTheImpact's Wear White Day -- March 5

JoinTheImpact has announced their next action: Wear White Day on March 5th!

From their website:

As you may have heard, March 5 is the date the California Supreme Court will hear arguments on the validity of Proposition 8. This is a day that begins an historic process which directly affects the rights not just of those who seek a same-sex marriage, but all minority rights. Proposition 8 sets a precedent that allows the majority to vote on the rights of a minority any time there is a court decision. It can affect the rights of any minority that faces discrimination because it TAKES AWAY an existing right from a targeted minority. Prop 8 clearly affects the rights of the LGBTQ community, but it’s implications are far more reaching. Additionally, Prop 8 does not just affect the rights of Californians. All Americans are affected. The conservative right is bringing this fight to us in states throughout the Union. Yesterday in Hawaii 2,000 people stood AGAINST Civil Unions. Florida, Arkansas and Arizona also all lost ballot measures in their states on Nov. 4 to limit the rights of our families. We are under attack, and we MUST fight back.

We can all show our solidarity on March 5 by wearing white. This can be a wedding dress, sailor uniform, feather boa, all white leather, white tee, white knot, whatever you please.

A white feather boa, huh?

Oh, and don't forget the excellent work the guys/gals/etc. are doing over at WhiteKnot.org, who made an excellent showing at the Oscars last night.

Thnak you Barry for the info!

Theres also an Action tomorrow in KY against the Anti - Gay Adoption Bill and for GLBT Rights.


Its really time IMO that we all adopt "whatever happens to you happens to me mentality" and we all start crossing state lines when we can to support each other and the battle for our rights. What happens in one State can eventually set a precedent for what happens in another.

Love ya bro
