This Sunday, SAVE Dade and faith groups rallied at the Torch of Friendship in Bayfront Park in support of a trans-inclusive Human Rights Ordinance that would protect everyone in Miami-Dade County.
Nearly 100 supporters rallied in support of the proposal, which was withdrawn from consideration before the County Commission earlier this summer after a campaign of misinformation led by extremists and special interests claiming to represent the faithful of Miami-Dade County.
The faith rally put to rest the notion that religious members of our community oppose extending human rights to all. Nearly a dozen faith groups rallied in support human rights, including Unity on the Bay of Miami, Temple Israel of Miami Beach, the Coral Gables Congregational United Christian Church, Trinity Cathedral, Miami Beach Community Church, and All Souls' Episcopal Church of Miami Beach.
The event made a splash in local and national media. The rally received coverage in the Miami Herald, the Huffington Post, and WLRN, to name a few outlets. Allison Grisham of InterfaithOUT, who spoke at the rally, was interviewed by the Miami Herald in the video above.
