2008 NRLR press conference


2008 NRLR press conference in California supporting the freedom to marry

On Monday, Oct. 20, dozens of multi-faith leaders of the National Religious Leadership Roundtable, convened by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, gathered on the steps of San Francisco City Hall, where they sent a strong and unified call of support for the freedom to marry. They were joined by local faith leaders to amplify the message of treating all California citizens equally under the law.

During the press conference, it was also announced that 2,200 ordained clergy from more than 50 faith traditions and every state in the U.S. have endorsed the Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Marriage Equality, sponsored by the Religious Institute on Sexual Morality, Justice, and Healing, as a call for recognition of civil and religious marriages for same-sex couples. Several media outlets covered the press conference; view some of the highlights below.
