HRC to kick off
whistle-stop tour for marriage equality

From Oklahoma City to Chicago, HRC will try to change minds about same-sex marriage

On Wednesday, only days after the U.S. Senate voted down the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, the Human Rights Campaign announced it's launching the Count Me In summer tour, which will traverse the country in the name of equal marriage rights.

In each city the tour visits there will be roundtable discussions, town hall meetings, and the chance to educate people on a one-on-one basis. The tour will travel from Oregon to Pennsylvania, with 14 stops already set, including visits to Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Chicago, and Kansas City, Kan. More destinations are being added daily.

"The momentum in this country is toward equality, and this summer we are keeping that force moving forward by talking with Americans about joining the fight for fairness," said Joe Solmonese, HRC president.
