Join Out4Immigration at San Francisco Pride, June 29-30 and Attend DOMA Day of Decision Rally (Various Locations)

Another Day of Decision has come and gone, leaving only three more potential days for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to announce their decisions on the pending DOMA and Proposition 8 cases.

Those dates are now: Monday, June 24, Thursday, June 27 or Friday, June 28.

Win, lose or draw - be sure to make your voice heard. Attend a Day of Decision rally in your city. Check this link for information. Our legal sources have informed us that if DOMA is overturned, same-sex binationals will be able to file marriage-based green card applications. We encourage you to consult with your immigration attorney as soon as possible. If you need recommendations, you can email us at

One thing is certain. We will have a SCOTUS decision before San Francisco Pride on June 29-30. That's why we need all hands on deck to help disseminate information at our booth at Civic Center on both days, as well as to march with us at 10 am on Sunday, June 30.
  • To volunteer for a 2-hour shift at our booth, June 29-30, please RSVP at this Facebook link.
  • To march with us at San Francisco Pride on June 30, please RSVP at this Facebook link.
Not on Facebook, but ready to help out? Let us know at

This year we are again sharing booth space with our allies Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA) and marching behind their contingent in the parade. Our message is very much linked to theirs - marriage equality has always been one of the pathways to ending immigration inequality. With our current exclusion from the Senate immigration bill, the pathway to green cards for same-sex binationals hinges heavily on the DOMA decision. 

We will put out an email on the Day of Decision sharing with all of you what we know and available resources. Please keep visiting the Facebook links above and checking our blog and Yahoo News Group for our Pride booth number and Parade contingent meetup time and place. We'll encourage those of you marching in the parade to bring your own signs -- will they say finally "United by Love, United by Law" or ....?

Take a deep breath.
