DontAmend.com organizes marriage rights protests, April 15
Sign the Petition:  
"I won't vote for anyone who supports the anti-gay amendment"



On April 15, 24 cities across the country will host demonstrations for same-sex marriage rights at local post offices. The "No Taxation With Discrimination" protests aim to bring awareness of gay marriage issues and to mobilize support from the GLBT community and its allies. The tax day protests are being organized by a national online network cofounded by Robin Tyler and John Aravosis and are devoted to stopping antigay constitutional amendments. "Gay Americans and their allies must make fighting this legislative bigotry our number 1 priority," said Aravosis in a statement.
