Tampa – Domestic Partner Registry Vigil

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Joyce Hamilton Henry,

Stand with us in support of Hillsborough County’s diverse community as we call on the Hillsborough County Commission to create a domestic partner registry.

Earlier this year, the commission voted 4-3 against creating a domestic partner registry. The ACLU of Florida supported the creation of the registry, which would have allowed both same- and opposite-sex couples to access important legal protections. Join us as we call on the commissioners to create these protections and for all couples.

Invited speakers include:

  • Councilwoman Yvonne Yolie Capin
  • Rev. Joe Parramore from New Journey Fellowship
  • Ed Lally from Equality Florida
  • USF student and ACLU volunteer Lindsay Betros
