With the Supreme Court expected to hear arguments this week regarding the same sex marriage, local same-marriage supporters will hold a vigil Tuesday in solidarity with a national movement.
The “Light the Way to Justice” vigil, which is one of many being held across the country, will take place at Incarnation Lutheran Church, near the Water Mill-Bridgehampton border, on Tuesday evening.
"The Hamptons Light the Way to Justice Vigil will demonstrate that support for marriage equality runs deep in our community — regardless of one’s age, race, religious beliefs or political affiliation," according to organizers.
"Please come and show support," wrote organizer Lisa Votino-Tarrant, who worked with the Human Rights Campaign to urge the New York State Legislature to legalize same-sex marriage. "Let’s show the world that everyone deserves equal rights and that love is love is love."
Votino-Tarrant is working in conjunction with the Incarnation Lutheran Church's paster, the Rev. Dr. Katrina Foster.
The vigil is from 5 to 7 p.m. March 26. RSVP on Facebook. Attendees are encouraged to bring signs and candles. A group photo is planned, to send to elected officials.
