Make a Resolution for Love
Without a doubt, 2012 has been a momentous year for Standing on the Side of Love.
We kicked off the year with our first annual Thirty Days of Love, bringing together thousands of people in a month of intentional reflection, action, education, and witness for love. In June, we gathered in Phoenix, a group of 2,500 strong, to call for justice at Sheriff Joe Arapaio’s inhumane Tent City jail. Across the country, we stood on the side of love at countless local city council meetings, detention centers, pride parades, state houses, prayer vigils, Walmart stores, and even the United States Supreme Court. We sent over 2,000 messages of love and support to the victims of the shooting at the Sikh temple in Oak Creak, Wisconsin. Together, we worked for a 2012 Election with unprecedented victories for marriage equality, DREAMers, and diversity in the halls of Congress.
Despite these amazing triumphs for love and justice, there is still much more work to be done in pursuit of the Beloved Community.
Join us in making a resolution for love in 2013. Pledge to take part in the Thirty Days of Love today!
We are kicking off 2013 with our second annual Thirty Days of Love campaign, and we hope you will join us once again on this month-long spiritual journey for justice. We will celebrate some important milestones–Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the second inauguration of our first African American president, and more. President Obama has promised that comprehensive immigration reform will be on the top of his agenda, and we will be working with our partners across the country to ensure that families stay are able to stay together. And that’s just the beginning! We need your vision, your ideas, and your voice as we work for a more just and loving world in 2013.
With your help, we can stand on the side of love in new and profound ways in the upcoming year. Join the movement and take the Thirty Days of Love pledge today.
