Areas of Study

The National Equality March will take place October 10 to 11 on the National Mall, and Gallaudet will host two activities related to the event.

The national march promises to draw thousands of men and women with the goal of equal protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states. This march is described by its organizers, Equality Across America, as a first step to build a grassroots network in all 435 congressional districts.

Sign language interpreters will be available at most major events.

Gallaudet’s Rainbow Society will host two events on Saturday, October 10: A grassroots activist festival from 8 to 11 a.m. and a “speak out” from 11 a.m. to noon (more information at left).

Gallaudet students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends are welcome to attend the National Equality March and events at Gallaudet, and the faculty have been encouraged to incorporate the knowledge gained and lessons learned from the march into classroom teaching and learning.

For more information, see the Equality Across America website. A schedule of events is posted here.
