Community Event:Eve of Justice

Pacific Pride Foundation and the Strategic Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) Announces the Santa Barbara and Santa Maria Eve of Justice Candlelight Vigil

Pacific Pride Foundation and the Strategic Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) announce local participation in a statewide Eve of Justice candlelight vigil on Wednesday, March 4th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

On Thursday March 5th the California Supreme Court hears oral arguments on the validity of Prop 8. The evening prior, we’ll stand together and send a unified message to our fellow Californians, including the Supreme Court Justices, that individual liberties like the right to marry are guaranteed by the Constitution to everyone and cannot be stripped away at the ballot box by a bare majority. Just as important, we will give our love and support to all the families headed by same-sex couples who are threatened by the recent electoral outcome, as well as same-sex couples whose hopes and dreams of marriage and family have been frustrated by enactment of Prop 8.

Locations for the vigils are as follows:
- in Santa Barbara at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens
- in Santa Maria at the northeast corner of Main & Broadway

We are asking all participants to arrive at 5:30 p.m. and bring a candle and a friend.

S.A.M.E. and Pacific Pride Foundation are also asking everyone who support marriage equality to wear white on Thursday March 5th.

Before you go to the vigil set the DVR to record Citizen McCaw. It is airing several times during the week. The schedule is here>>>

I just viewed it for the first time. To paraphrase a council members comments in the documentary; so many struggles are not being recorded.
