A beautiful event at El Pueblo, Eve of Justice in Los Angeles unified an already strong community with a message that no matter how the Supreme Court rules on Prop 8, no one can take our commitment to our loved one away. Committed to showing solidarity, the weather did not keep the hundreds of attendees away - in fact, the rain just made it more beautiful. No matter what elements are against us, no one can take our light away, as was explicitly shown when the crowd was led in unison to the classic song, "This Little Light of Mine."
Many spoke at the event, including Rick Jacobs of the Courage Campaign, Attorney Jenny Pizer with Lambda Legal, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who performed the recommitment ceremonies, and Father Geoff Farrow with a musical performance from Mandy Steckelberg. Videos "Fidelity" from Courage Campaign, relationship stories from 13LoveStories.com and the "Permission" video from ThinkMTV aired.
The rain miraculously stopped just in time for the peaceful march led by a Korean drum band to the Los Angeles Ronald Reagan State Building which houses the Supreme Court when in the city. Upon reaching the building, the event and march ended with a moving speech from Rabbi Denise L. Eger of Congregation Kol Ami.
