September 15, 2011 The FAIR IS FAIR in Montana Tour begins tomorrow in Billings, Montana, with Gil's arrival from New Jersey at 4:30 pm. Ninia, our ACLU cohort, and I will be picking him up at the airport, and we'll be off and running! Our schedule is below. We will blogging daily and updating on facebook and twitter as we go along. Please join us on this extraordinary adventure for same-sex relationship recognition. Our goal is to reach 300 new people to join in support of the Donaldson & Guggenheim vs. State of Montana lawsuit and get to 100 signers to the clergy statement of support (we're at 72 right now). If you are a clergy person and would like to sign the statement, please email Ninia at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're in Montana because of how the state represents so much going on across the nation on domestic partnership rights, non-discrimination policies, and racial justice. We hope you will tune-in no matter where you are located! Let's journey together!
In our joint efforts for equality and justice for all, Marilyn
