eveofjusticeOn Wednesday, March 4 — the night before the state Supreme Court hears oral arguments on the validity of Prop 8 — Californians will stand together in at least 27 vigils across the state to send a unified message that the inalienable right to marry cannot be stripped away at the ballot box.

Led by Marriage Equality USA, these powerful and poignant “Eve of Justice” statewide vigils are being supported by several national, state and local organizations, including the Courage Campaign, Human Rights Campaign, Join The Impact, Equality California, Amnesty International, GLAAD, PFLAG, California Faith for Equality and the Progressive Jewish Alliance.

Please join us on Wednesday as we stand strong together — gay, straight, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender — in community vigils across California, from San Diego to Stockton. To find location information about your community vigil, click here:


On the morning of Thursday, March 5 in San Francisco, as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., marriage equality supporters will be gathering outside the California Supreme Court building at 350 McAllister Street in United Nations Plaza.

With financial support from the Courage Campaign and many others, our friends at Marriage Equality USA are setting up a JumboTron so thousands of people can watch the proceedings together. If you can make it to San Francisco on Thursday morning, please join us outside the California Supreme Court starting at 8 a.m.

Meanwhile, on the morning of Thursday, March 5 in Los Angeles, marriage equality supporters will also be gathering at City Hall (Rm. 340 at 200 N. Spring Street) and at the West Hollywood Auditorium (647 N. San Vicente Boulevard) to watch the oral arguments broadcast from the state Supreme Court in San Francisco.

Remember: No matter what the Supreme Court decides following the March 5 oral arguments, the fight for equality will continue across California and the country.
