BENEFITING: CAMPAIGN FOR SOUTHERN EQUALITY

EVENT: 2013 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013

Amy Evans

THE STORY:

This summer two men, Kurt and Jamie, attempted to apply for a marriage license in the state of Mississippi. The clerk at the counter politely informed them that she would accept their application but could not issue them the license. ‘It’s because of the law,’ she said. Kurt and Jamie explained that they were deeply in love and wanted to take legal responsibility for one another’s lives. The clerk, visibly moved, insisted that she could not issue the license - again, ‘because of the law.’

The Campaign for Southern Equality (CSE) is an important reminder that we make the laws, not the other way around - and we have the ability to change them. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the CSE is a national effort to achieve full equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people under US federal law. The CSE is striving to achieve this goal through acts of ‘emphatic resistance,’ including the WE DO campaign where scores of LGBT couples throughout the South have applied for - and been denied - marriage licenses. As the WE DO campaign pushes forward, the CSE continues to provide legal clinics to help LGBT folks protect themselves under the current laws and ensure that they have access to support in times of crisis.

As a southerner, I know that the CSE is on the front lines of a battle that will be tough to win. But win it they will - with your help. I’m asking you to donate whatever you can - whether it’s a dime, a dollar, or more - for every mile I run in the ING New York City Marathon on November 3. Every penny of your donation will go directly to support the Campaign for Southern Equality. And it will motivate me to run the fastest, most meaningful race I can.

Thank you so much for your support!

See you in November

Amy
