Dallas-Area Day of Decision March & Rally

  • Place Cathedral of Hope
  • Time 6:00 p.m.

Join the Dallas-area community in a gathering to commemorate the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision on the marriage cases it heard back in March 2015. Regardless of the outcome and the date, we will gather together for the following events: At 6P, we will gather at Cathedral of Hope for an inspirational rally, celebration of love, and discussion about what the ruling means for same-gender loving couples, families, people of faith/faith-free people and how the decision compels us moving forward. At 7:30P, we will march on the sidewalk down Cedar Springs to the Legacy of Love Monument at the Oak Lawn Triangle. Get your signs and noisemakers ready for this exciting moment where we march in solidarity with one another. At 8P, we will gather around the Legacy of Love Monument for a festive display of what the ruling means to the #LGBTQ community, the people we love, and hear a call to action for what remains ahead. (There will also be a press conference that morning at 11:30A in the plaza of the Dallas County Records Building. Everyone is welcome to come and join that event as well!) SIGN UP USING THE LINK BELOW to receive an email from Texas for Marriage when the event is confirmed that will also include important information for those waiting to marry the person they love here in #Texas.

PREVIEW COMMUNITY SCREENING: “WE DO” by Rebecca Rice

  • Place Cathedral of Hope
  • Time Six o'clock in the evening

What does it mean for LGBT couples to finally possess full marriage rights? And why does it matter? Join Hope for Peace & Justice and Cathedral of Hope [wording here] on June 20 for the world premiere of Dallas filmmaker Rebecca Rice’s “We Do.” “We Do” reveals the stories of three LGBT couples, their journeys for legal recognition of their relationships and the impact that the pursuit of marriage equality has on their lives. Following the 60-minute documentary, we will conduct a brief Q&A with the director and at least one of the couples featured in the film. Suggested donation is $5.00. Tickets will be available online.

Frequently asked questions

01.

Is your organization predominantly focused on LGBT issues?

While our origin is out of an LGBT-affirming faith community, our scope of peace and social justice is much broader than “gay.” We believe racism is an LGBT issue. As is classism, sexism, and any other social justice issue. We believe that in the pursuit of peace in our society, we must unite on all matters of injustice or marginalization. We remain LGBT-affirming but welcome all to our cause.

02.

Is your organization primarily Christian?

04.

Do I need to be a member to participate in H4PJ activities?

The only prerequisite to participate in H4PJ activities is a heart molded (or being molded) by Micah 6:8.

05

Can my organization or church become an H4PJ partner?

H4PJ is always looking for organizations to partner with on issues related to the pursuit of peace and justice—particularly those rooted in an expression of faith. Contact Rev. Dr. Jeff Hood to discuss partnering with us.

06.

Do I need any special skill to be involved with H4PJ?

Being an activist can be expressed in many ways. While some find themselves on the front lines, megaphone and protest sign in hand, others have the gift of organizing, writing, raising and managing money, social media, or marketing. Others bring creativity and passion for direct action. Some offer the gift of prayer. All such gifts—and many others—are welcome at H4PJ.
