We’re winning in the courts. We’re winning case after case, as we head back to the Supreme Court for a 50-state ruling on marriage equality. But now is not the time to sit by and wait for court rulings. It’s time to continue and broaden our call for rights by taking action in the public square.
The Campaign for Southern Equality is launching another round of WE DO actions this summer and fall in South Carolina, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee!
The WE DO Campaign involves LGBT couples requesting marriage licenses in their hometowns across the South to call for full equality under federal law.
We are recruiting:
(1) Unmarried LGBT* couples who will request marriage licenses (training is required);
(2) LGBT* people and allies who will be part of the Support Team that stands with couples.
If you have any questions, contact our campaign manager Lindsey Simerly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828.242.1559.
WATCH a WE DO Campaign action:
Louisville, Kentucky WE DO action (July 28)
Same-sex Kentucky couples will apply for marriage licenses at the Jefferson County Clerks office in Louisville. Couples will be joined by clergy, friends, family and supporters. They will then travel by bus to Metropolis, Illinois where same-sex marriage is legal. The couples will be married on the banks of the Ohio River just across the water from their home state of Kentucky.
This WE DO action is a joint project of the Campaign for Southern Equality, Faith Leaders for Fairness, ACLU of Kentucky and the Fairness Campaign.
Greenville, South Carolina WE DO action (July 30)
