HRC urges peaceful protests

The Human Rights Campaign is urging participants in the nationwide Prop. 8 protests organized by to keep it peaceful.

"To my community and allies, I say this: our anger is just; our goal is alive" HRC President Joe Solmonese said in a prepared statement. "We must remain worthy of the cause we fight for. Our cause is love; and only through love can we win the freedom to marry. In the streets and over coffee, our message must be consistent. We love our soul mates and our families; we love and respect our neighbors; we expect love and respect in return.

"To reverse the outcomes of November 4, we must embrace our passion and anger, and redirect them to tasks that have as yet gone undone."
