Saturday: Light Up The Night

Join The Impact sends a reminder about this Saturday's Light Up The Night rally in NYC which includes the corrected locations to the ones I posted earlier this week. Find the protest in your city via the links at bottom.

Saturday, December 20, 6 PM, 35th Street And Sixth Avenue

This Saturday, December 20, the LGBT community of New York will again take to the streets to demand equality in marriage and all civil rights. The march is part of "Light Up The Night," a nationwide protest organized by Join The Impact. JTI organized the previous national day of protest on November 15, which included a rally at New York City Hall attended by more than 5,000 people.

For "Light Up The Night," we will meet on Saturday at 6 PM, at the intersection of 35th Street and Sixth Avenue (the north side of Herald Square) for a candlelight march to Times Square. (Bring your own candles, flashlights, etc.) We will end the march at 7 PM with a rally at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and 42nd Street. Gay and lesbian couples will talk about their personal struggle for equality in the face of discriminatory marriage laws.

JTI is also holding a food drive to show that the LGBT community also gives back to society. On Saturday, December 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM, we will be collecting canned and dry food in front of the Whole Foods Store on the south side of Union Square, and in front of the Trader Joe's Store on 14th Street and Third Avenue. We will be donating the collection to the Sylvia Rivera Food Pantry, which serves the LGBT and HIV communities and all of New York.
