Right to Marry Arizona Update

Greetings from fellow Arizonans. We are writing to tell you about the Right to Marry campaign that will taking place in August.

We wanted to let you know young-adults will engage Phoenix during the week of August 9th. The Equality Walkers will journey 97 miles, the number of years Arizona has been a state without equal protection for its LGBT citizens, throughout the city. Along the route they will bring the conversation of civics, faith, and equality to religious institutions, politicians and community members.

We are writing foremost because we recognize and value your work on LGBT issues in this state. We think it behooves us all to be in good communication about our respective efforts. Secondly, if you have feedback, insight, or a desire to be involved, we should talk. This week we are putting out the call for participation, and this is an exciting intergenerational campaign that many folks can be a part of in creative ways.

We would love for you to show support of this event in any of the following ways:

* Host a meal

* Walk a portion of the route

* Email blast information about the walk

* Bring your organization members and supporters to the final mile of the walk from Phoenix City Hall to the Arizona State Capital on Saturday August 15th at 11am.

* Contact us with your personal stories

Please also check out our website for more information about the structure, the timeline, and details on involvement. We hope that we can work together or be mutually beneficial in our movement's goals for marriage equality in our state.

Feel free to contact us at any time.

Many thanks,

Meg Sneed
