-National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Co-Sponsors March for Women's Lives; Asks Members Who Are Attending to Join LGBT Marching Contingent


Dear National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Friends:

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is proud to be a co-sponsor of the March for Women's Lives in Washington D.C. on Sunday, April 25th. To support our allies confronting the daily, continued assault on women's reproductive rights,
the Task Force is joining a large contingent of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)people at the March and is asking all Task Force friends who are attending to join the LGBT contingent.

March Details:

- Assembly begins to gather at 10 am on National Mall between 3rd and 14th Streets NW (ask any March volunteer for the specific gathering location of "New York LGBT Center delegation.") The Task Force will be lining up with the Center and we'd love to have our members from across the country join and march with us. Look for our big National Gay and Lesbian Task Force banner!)

- March steps off at noon

- Rally and programs at 1 pm
