Updated with information about all the protests

Everyone has been asking what they can do in response to Florida's Amendment 2, California Prop 8, and Arizona 102. Well, someone has answered that question.

fist.jpgJoin the Impact has started a movement for a National Day of Protest on November 15th, 2008:

On the steps of your City Hall on November 15th at 10:30am PST /1:30pm EST, our community WILL take to the streets and speak out.

The website has four locations in Indiana listed (Indianapolis, Bloomington, Evansville, and South Bend), but are asking for anyone to contact them to arrange one in their area. California had been protesting nonstop since their constitutional amendment passed, making huge national headlines. Now we can all step up and do the same in our own state.

Visit www.jointheimpact.com for more information. Feel free to use the comments section here or send me information to post about protests you are organizing in your area. Protest information for Indianapolis, South Bend, and Evansville after the jump..

I'll update as I get more information!

We will be starting up at 12:30am, but it's fine if you don't come until 1:30pm, as there's been a little confusion as to when the starting time is.

It's looking cold and possibly rainy, so bring a coat and umbrella. Camcorders and disposable cameras would be great, but are not required.

Thank You for posting information on the Indiana rallies against Prop8!

Thanks for organizing one of the protests, Evan! That's better than just posting about it! :)

Some of the times here are confusing. The Eastern Standard Time for the event is 1:30 as mentioned in the when section, not the 12:30 mentioned in the introductory line, though there is something to be said for getting there early.

Thanks for pointing that out, Melanie. I've corrected the blurb before the Indy protest. I thought I got all of those, but apparently I missed one.

Isn't it hell living in Indiana where you get two time zones? Originally the JoinTheImpact site had us all at 12:30, then 1:30 and then it got split as it should. I've changed this darn post three times now!

(No wonder a lot of Hoosiers are confused as to the timing of the event! Including me!)

These protest rallies are wonderful, but ...

we should have done them 30 days ago!
