We are Pennsylvania's grassroots movement for equality for the entire LGBTQ community.
Break out your banners, your candles, and your desire to win marriage equality for all Pennsylvanians. If you live in or near Erie, come out to the Rally for Marriage Equality on Wednesday, March 26 at 7 PM. We will be in front of the Federal Courthouse on the one year anniversary of our first ever candlelight vigil.
On March 26, 2013, ME4PA joined forces with GetEqual and MEUSA to host the Light the Way to Justice rallies and candlelight vigils all across the US. On the anniversary of the oral arguments that ultimately ended California's Prop 8, and section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, it it time to come back out and demand that Pennsylvania leaders end the ban on marriage equality, and fight to end legal discrimination against the LGBT community in Pennsylvania. You can sign up to attend the event by joining us on the Facebook event page. Stay tuned for upcoming events across PA throughout the year. -- David.
