Dear Marriage Supporter,
I wrote to you yesterday about the historic events underway in Mexico, where millions have taken to the streets to protest the government's proposals, led by President Enrique Peña Nieto, to impose same-sex 'marriage' across Mexico and also to have dangerous gender theories taught to Mexican children in all public schools.
We launched a petition to show support for the Mexican people as they continue to speak truth to power, and in just 24 hours we've had a tremendous response: nearly 4,000 of you have signed to voice your solidarity with our brothers and sisters in this important fight!
We know from our friends on the ground in Mexico that the President's administration and the ruling party are feeling the pressure, and it will be a great encouragement to the leaders of the Mexican pro-family movement when I deliver these signatures personally to them on September 24th at the major event they're holding in Mexico City.
But today I want to let you know about another effort we're engaging in order to show our support and help the Frente Nacional por la Familia draw attention to President Peña Nieto's radical proposals.
On Friday, September 23rd, NOM — along with our allies, the World Congress of Families and CitizenGO — will be holding a rally in Washington, DC in front of the Mexican embassy beginning at noon. We will have speakers voice the American people's unity of purpose with the Mexican people in this effort, and we will deliver a letter to the embassy letting the Mexican government know that the cause of defending the family is a global effort.
Similar rallies are going to be taking place the same day at Mexican embassies in countries throughout the world. This is a truly historic moment, and I hope you will be a part of it!
Here is how you can become involved in this truly momentous world-wide demonstration of support the day before millions of our Mexican brothers and sisters march in their nation's capital in defense of marriage and family:
- If you haven't done so yet, please sign our petition of support for the Frente Nacional por la Familia and their millions of supporters across Mexico as they work to defend the family against the tangible and ideological threats of same-sex 'marriage' and gender ideology.
- If you are in or around Washington, DC and you are able, please come to the Mexican embassy at noon on Friday, September 23rd to show your support. The media in American and across the world have been ignoring the historic movement underway in Mexico, but the events at Mexican embassies worldwide will help draw international attention to this movement and send a signal that even the biased media cannot ignore.
- Invite your friends and family to sign the petition, and if you know anyone who can make it to the rally in DC, encourage them to attend.
- Follow the hashtag #DefendemosLaFamilia on Facebook and Twitter, and "like," "share," and "retweet" pictures and stories about the embassy rallies on September 23rd and the National March for the Family in Mexico City on September 24th.
Marriage Supporter, we really are witnessing a historic groundswell in support of marriage and family, not only in Mexico but across the globe, and I truly hope that you will become a part of this tremendous moment by helping in whatever way you can.
¡Viva la Familia!
