11:30 am: Marriage Equality Forum
Westmoreland’s Marriage Equality in Maryland Committee is pleased to invite you to join us for a Marriage Equality Forum where we will provide an opportunity for people to voice their concerns or ask for clarification about the Civil Marriage Protection Act passed by Maryland’s legislature in March that needs affirmation in the November ballot before becoming the law in January 2013.
Dr. Pat Montley, a playwright and retired Professor of Theatre, and Dr. Sally Wall, a Professor of Psychology, have agreed to lead this forum next Sunday. They describe themselves as “proud grandmothers, lifelong Marylanders, and active members of the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore, where they serve as worship associates.” They have testified many times in Annapolis for Gay rights legislation and are active in Equality Maryland. Their photos are below.
Please feel free to drop in before or after Coffee Hour at the Volunteer Corps house. For those who may not be going to the Volunteer Corps house, we will serve coffee, tea, and some modest munchies in the parlor after the service concludes.
