WHAT: "Our Families Count!" Rally

WHEN: Thursday, February 9, 2006 1-3pm

WHERE: Indiana Statehouse North Atrium (200 W Washington Street Indianapolis)

WHO: Indiana Equality & Friends

WHY: Our families are not second-class! The state shouldn't teach that they are!

CONTACT:Jerame Davis or Dan Funk

Since the anti-marriage constitutional amendment won't be debated again until next year, fundamentalist lawmakers are introducing other bills aimed at forcing LGBT families back into the closets of shame and denial.

For example, in the House, two bills would change Indiana law to declare that married heterosexual relationships are preferred, encouraged, and supported over any other domestic relationships, implying that LGBT families and individuals are second class citizens.

Stand up and let your family be counted! Join Indiana Equality at the Statehouse for the "Our Families Count!" rally February 9.

Representatives from many area groups will be on hand. Guest speakers will start at 1:30! We have many great speakers lined up. You won't want to miss this historic rally for equality!

Visit the IE site and tell them you will be there!

I will be representing CCR and Indiana Equality at the Purdue Queer Student Union Board's Spring Semester call out-- Thursday on campus.

We will be challenging the Purdue students to step up-- and OUTDO -- the other Indiana universities (Especially the evil one to the south in Bloomington)in attendance -- in full university regalia.

I'd suggest anyone with a college contact to do the same. Let's fill that atrium with families, clergy, professionals, and especially college-identifying students -- to show the brain drain these anti-family/ anti-GLBT legislators are fomenting.
