Hello to all,

I hope this email finds everyone well.  I am writing on behalf of Why Marriage Matters Ohio to invite you to a community meeting on Monday December 15 at 6pm here at the LGBT Center.  The goal of the meeting is to explore how OHIO and Athens can become more involved with the marriage equality movement as well as discuss challenges experienced by same-sex couples and ways to show solidarity.  Given many of the conversations happening around benefits at the university and the challenges we are facing due to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals decision (or lack there of), this conversation takes on several different levels of importance.

Below is a link to our facebook event and a flier is attached.  I am mindful that we are headed into the holiday and winter break season but hope you are able to join us; the meeting is open to everyone…students, faculty, staff, and members of the wider Athens/Southeastern Ohio communities.  Please feel free to share this invitation with others who  may be interested in taking part in the conversation.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Many thanks for your time and help!

In solidarity

“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act.  It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence.  It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community.” —Janet Mock, author and activist
