Activist San Diego, S.A.M.E. to Discuss Marriage Equality March 18

This Monday, March 18, 7 p.m. at the Joyce Beers Community Center in Hillcrest (at the north end of Vermont Avenue between Panera and Aladdin restaurants), local attorneys and activists will discuss the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court cases challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage equality, and the so-called “Defense of Marriage Act” passed by the U.S. Congress in 1996, which bars legally married same-sex couples from receiving benefits or equal treatment from the federal government.

The meeting is co-sponsored by Activist San Diego and SAME Alliance (formerly San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality) and, in addition to the speakers listed below, will feature José Medina of SAME Alliance. For the record, the statement on the flyer that Fernando Lopez was formerly employed by the San Diego LGBT Community Center is not correct; Zenger’s regrets the error.
