Call To Action: Nationwide Demonstrations Planned For SCOTUS DOMA & Prop 8 Decisions

So, SCOTUS yet again didn't release any decisions on major rulings (including the marriage equality cases) today, but we want you to be prepared to rally when the high court does lay down the law. Rulings on the Prop 8 and DOMA cases could come as early as Thursday at 10 a.m. est. When the decisions are released, planned demonstrations across the country will be the places to be to put your reactions on display.
