NEW: Providence College Students to Hold Gay Marriage Rally

Thursday, March 10, 2011


Students from Providence College will hold an on-campus rally today at 4:30 p.m., in support of gay marriage.

The Rhode Island Students for Equality (RISE) has organized a series of campus rallies across the state to demonstrate college students’ active support for two gay marriage bills in the state’s House and Senate. Today’s rally will be the second in a series of six occurring throughout Rhode Island.

“This year marks the closest Rhode Island has ever come to passing marriage equality for same-sex couples. As a Catholic college, there is a certain and obvious conflict we all face. Let it be known that there is a growing movement within the Catholic community in support of marriage equality,” student organizers said in a statement.

Students will use rally as an opportunity to show the entire General Assembly that marriage matters to college students. Organizers are also appealing directly to state Representative John DeSimone and state Senator Dominick Ruggeri, who both represent the college’s district, in hopes that they will support the legislation.

More information about each rally will be posted on RISE’s Facebook page.
