On the 28th June: I will march with Shirley Tan, Jay Mercado and the twins, albeit in a vehicle in the San Francisco Pride parade. Shirley and family are the courageous heroes who gave up privacy for publicity and are marching at the invitation of OUT4IMMIGRATION, a volunteer organization working to change the laws for binational LGBT families.
I am also very proud to say that Rabbi Michael Lezak will lead the congregants of Rodef Sholom, Marin County in the SF Parade march, as he has been doing for many years. This congregation is a great supporter of marriage and all equal rights for LGBT families.
On June 30th, I will be going to Sacramento with Shirley Tan and her family, to testify in favor of a California State Resolution supporting the passage of the Uniting American Families Act* which was re-introduced into Congress by Senator Leahy in February of this year.
*The Uniting American Families Act (UAFA, H.R. 1024, S. 424) is a U.S. bill to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate discrimination in the Immigration Laws of the USA.
