FairTalk invites everyone to gather and show our support and hope for a fair and just Supreme Court ruling on the DOMA and Prop 8 cases. This rally is being held at the Monroe County Courthouse as part of a nationwide event in support of marriage equality called United for Marriage: Light the Way to Justice.
As a part of the “Light the Way to Justice” movement, IEA will be holding a vigil on the east steps of the statehouse in Indianapolis (220 W. Washington Street) from 6-7 PM on Wednesday, March 27th. Bring your family, bring your friends, and join us to show your support for relationship equality at this unprecedentedly significant moment in our nation’s history.

Billed as All IN for Love, the program features four public screenings of Inlaws & Outlaws as well as post-screening Q & A’s with filmmaker Drew Emery. For two of the shows, FairTalk will also lead facilitated conversation circles on the intersection of faith and marriage equality. While the presentation of the film is to inspire greater understanding and support for marriage equality, the conversation circles are an opportunity for people with divergent points of view to respectfully find common ground.
