Rock-In for Equality: Ending Social Security Discrimination, One Rocking Chair at a Time
At this afternoon’s plenary session, Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey and L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center CEO Lorri Jean announced the launch of a project intended to put an end to this discrimination, Rock for Equality.
Rock for Equality will call attention to and end the severe economic discrimination that is embedded in Social Security Administration policies and to secure equal recognition of same-sex relationships. Check out upcoming Rock for Equality events:
- April 11: Washington, D.C.
- April 18: Los Angeles
We will start by demonstrating outside the local Social Security offices. Then we will march to the Federal Building in West L.A. In D.C., we’re heading to the Capitol! In both cities we will stage a new kind of civil rights event. Some will sit in the street in rocking chairs, thousands more will rally behind them.
