A grassroots, non-violence driven marriage equality group that has recently come to my attention, Soulforce, will be making a stop in Utica next Wednesday for a potluck and public forum. Though the focus is on marriage equality for LGBTQ, you can see from their website that the platform is much broader and I really like the approach they take – non-violent soulforce action. Really a well-organized, inspiring group of young people. New Yorkers, check out the site and find out where they will be presenting in your area.
Utica: Wednesday, July 25 at 6pm- dinner, 7pm forum, at Plymouth-Bethseda United Church of Christ, 500 Plant St. Local political leaders, including senators, faith leaders, and LGBTQ couples have been invited to speak.
