Cleve Jones Invites Obama to March

Activist Cleve Jones issued an open letter to President Obama to speak at the National Equality March on October 11, even though Obama is slated to attend a golf event in San Francisco that day.

"Equal rights are not a 'gay' issue," he wrote. "They are about our shared human rights: safety in our schools and jobs, equitable healthcare and housing, and protection for our families to name a few."

Jones also compared next week's march to the Civil Rights March of 1963, during which the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech.

"We share Dr. King's belief in the dignity and equality of all peoples, and his commitment to non-violence," he added. "And we share his faith that justice will prevail."
