Social justice: Get organized against HJR6!

HJR6, the proposed amendment to Indiana’s Constitution, would severely limit civil rights for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) and is likely to cause significant problems for unmarried straight couples. HJR6 states the following: “Only a marriage between one (1) man and one (1) woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Indiana. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized” (http://www.indianaequalityaction.org/get-informed/nix-6/). The Social Justice Committee recently sponsored a church wide letter writing event to local legislators regarding HJR6. For those who were unable to attend, contact Tom McConville regarding how you can help with this process by writing letters from home.
