Join the Impact

From a Lloydletta Reader:

Here's the thing - with this past weeks election walls were broken down, electing Obama President, but more walls were put up in Arizona, California, Florida and Arkansas. It has really frustrated me, angered me and saddened me. In California, as you may be aware, this past weekend was filled with protests over Prop.8. It made me want to do something too. But, as I said, I'm a bit of home body. I mean what can I do. Well, I was checking things out online and saw

They are asking the gay community and our friends and family to stand together for equal rights. On Nov. 15th (this Saturday) the folks at JoinTheImpact are organizing a national day of marriage equality, pro-GLBT rights protests on November 15, on the steps of every city hall at 1:30 P.M. EST so 12:30 my time in Mpls.

I was hoping that you at your blog could somehow put the word out. I have a small group of friends, so I thought you all at your blog would be in a better position than I. I don't have a blog and we need everyone across the nation to find out about Nov.15th

Here is a sign to print up. I see this more than just a California problem. I see this more than justProp 8 -it's about equal rights. I can't organize an event (really I know 10 people tops), I've sent emails to The Saloon, the Gay 90's, The TC Gay Mens Chorus, Lavender, Vera's , Outfront, and several other places but I don't know what more I can do myself. Just wondering if you can help spread the word.

Has there been anything organized for this in Minneapolis? What about St Paul?
