Though a quickly arranged counter-demonstration turned out a bigger crowd than a Tea Party inspired rally against same-sex marriage in Russellville
last weekend, a group supporting marriage equality decided to demonstrate from a positive perspective today.
BACK AGAIN: Equality demonstrators outnumbered foes at an anti-same-sex marriage rally in Russellville last week. Today, they are emphasizing the positive with a rally of their own.
Pope County for Equality
will have a "positive and peaceful" rally in in support of marriage equality in the park across from the train depot at 3 p.m. There will be a march to the courthouse and back. Speakers include James Bittle, Jeannie Fowler Stone and Dr. MarTeze Hammonds, associate dean for diversity and inclusion at Arkansas Tech. Music by Sad Magick.
