Be a Part of the National Equality March on Washington this October

by Kathy Drasky

Out4Immigration is looking for volunteers to be part of a contingent at the National Equality March on Washington in Washington DC on October 11, 2009. The organizers of the event have listed equal immigration rights for same-sex binational couples in the "Demand for Equality" and Out4Immigration has signed on as a supporter of the March.

If you are interested in attending the March, please email your contact information to

Please provide your name, email, date of planned arrival in DC and cell phone contact for the day itself. Once we have more details, O4I volunteers Jim and Tom will send you information about where to meet on the day of the March and more info about planned activities as they become available. If there are enough O4I members in town the night before the March, an informal get together for dinner or drinks will be planned.

Out4Immigration is also thinking of organizing a day or two to walk the halls of Congress to speak with representatives to get them to sign on to the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA) as well as educate them on this issue after the success of our Meet Your Representative campaign last month. As you know, it is very important to tell your personal story and how this unfair immigration law affects your life.

Can you make the journey to DC? Email if you want to participate in the March and/or the visits to Congress.
