Bills banning talk of homosexuality in grade schools and preventing local governments from passing non-discrimination ordinances made the Tennessee General Assembly this past session seem like a bully against equal rights.

A group of equality advocates are organizing a rally to stand up to that government bully. The Justice for All Rally will be held at First Congregational Church on Sunday, June 12th from 3 to 4 p.m.

Here's description from the event's Facebook page:

They talk about small government, when they should be talking about smart and effective government that works for all Tennesseans instead. Help send a message that we look to Tennessee state government to promote women's health, fair labor standards, workplace equality, safe schools, policies that respect people of all faith traditions or no faith tradition, responsible immigration policy, and the right to vote.
