Dear Friends of Marriage,

Join us Tuesday at 9am in front of the DC Court of Appeals as we rally for marriage!

On Tuesday morning, the Court of Appeals will be hearing the appeal in the DC Marriage Initiative case. As the media covers the arguments inside, NOM is joining Bishop Harry Jackson (also lead plaintiff in the case) and the Stand4Marriage DC team in calling on all marriage supporters to come together in a public display of support for marriage and for the rights of DC voters.

Join us for this historic event, as our coalition comes together across all racial, religious, and party lines to affirm the importance of marriage. Help support the African-American pastors and voters who have taken the lead in this important civil rights struggle to protect marriage and the voting rights of DC citizens. Over the past months, NOM has been contributing to Democratic city council candidates willing to stand for marriage, and on Tuesday Democrats and Republicans alike will come together in common cause to protect marriage. 

Please join us!

We will gather at 9am outside the DC Court of Appeals (430 E St. NW), just four blocks west of Union Station and around the corner from the Judiciary Square Metro station. I will be joining Bishop Jackson and others in speaking at the event, as we fight to protect marriage in our nation's capital.

We'll be there throughout the morning until around 2pm, with a press conference at 1pm following the hearing. So if you can't make it at 9, please stop by over your lunch hour or in the early afternoon!

We need you there -- and wear white!

Where: DC Court of Appeals, 430 E St. NW, Washington DC
When:  Tuesday, May 4, at 9:00am
Who:    You! 

If you believe the citizens of DC should have the right ot vote on same-sex marriage, we need you on Tuesday!  And please help spread the word to your friends and family. I know it's a work day, but if you can possibly arrange your schedule to be there, even for just a few minutes, please do.

Faithfully,
