• The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s grew because of gay activists such as Bayard Rustin, who organized the 1963 March on Washington. • Mr. Rustin was also an adviser to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., on peaceful protests. • Gay freedom fighters had to hide their sexuality and were marginalized. • Each time that Sen. Shirley Huntley votes no on marriage equality, she is spitting on the grave of pioneering civil rights activists such as Mr. Rustin, and she is denying others a chance at fulfilling on the dream of equality.
Despite having marched in Selma, Alabama, with Dr. Martin Luther King, Senator Shirley Huntley continues to promote injustice and prejudice against LGBTQ Americans by denying their civil rights, which includes marriage equality. In 2009, Senator Huntley voted “No” on the marriage equality bill, which would have guaranteed same-‐sex couples equal rights and protections under the law. We will not allow this discrimination any longer! Call Senator Huntley’s offices at 518-‐455-‐3531 or 718-‐523-‐3069 and DEMAND MARRIAGE EQUALITY in NY NOW!
