CA Supreme Court to issue ruling on validity of Prop 8 on Tuesday – Denver group planning local protest

From Soulforce’s Facebook event invite:

This morning, the California Supreme Court announced that it will rule on the validity of Prop 8 this TUESDAY, MAY 26th. Over 60 events across the nation are planned for the Day of Decision. Locally, Soulforce in Colorado is organizing a direct action on Tuesday.

The protest on Tuesday will have two parts.

FIRST – from 3:00-5:00pm there will be a peaceful walking picket along Colfax between 14th and 15th streets. This is in front of the Webb Administration Building where marriage licenses are issued.

SECOND – Individuals who have volunteered will stage a nonviolent sit-in and civil disobedience at the Denver Clerk and Recorder’s office. If you’re interested in being trained to participate in the sit-in please contact Chris Hubble ASAP at 303-800-5664.

—————————————————-

WHO: Soulforce in Colorado, YOU, and thousands of Americans at 60 confirmed events throughout the nation!

WHEN: Tuesday, May 26, 2009 from 3:00-5:00pm

WHY: We expect the media in Denver will be covering the Prop 8 decision and we want to give them a way to “localize” the story. We want to take this opportunity to continue the discussion of marriage equality in Colorado and respond to a national call for social change through the ongoing use of nonviolent direct action until the federal government extends equal protection in all fifty states on matters governed by civil law, including marriage equality for same-gender couples.

WHERE: In front of the Webb Administration Building on Colfax between 14th and 15th streets.
