Call To Action: Equality Alabama Launches Petition Drive Over Birmingham Proclamation

From Equality Alabama:

Equality Alabama launches petition in support of Pride
The Birmingham News reported on Saturday that Mayor Larry Langford declined to issue the traditional mayoral proclamation celebrating Central Alabama Pride or to allow Pride banners on city right-of-ways. Most disturbingly, the article reported that the Mayor intended to deny the required permit for the annual Pride parade based on his personal animus toward GLBT and their “lifestyle.” The Mayor subsequently reversed his position on the parade permit. However, it remains to be seen whether the private prejudices of public officials will manifest themselves in other ways during this year’s Pride celebrations. We must send a clear message to the city government that we support Pride and the rights of all people to equal treatment under the law. SIGN THE PETITION >
