This Thursday, Sept 24th @ 12pm on Ancel Plaza, please join us and community leaders for a conversation with one of America’s most renown gay rights activists about the National Equality March, which is scheduled for October 11, 2009 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Cleve Jones began a career in activism as a protégé of Harvey Milk. He later founded the AIDS Memorial Quilt and continues to be one of our community’s most influencial voices.
Earlier this year he called for a national march on Washington to mobilize a grass roots movement to achieve full civil equality at the federal level and in all fifty states.
On October 11th, 2009, we will gather in Washington, D.C. from all across America to let our elected leaders know that now is the time for full equal rights for LGBT Americans.
Come hear him explain why our time is now!
