WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) and the Massachusetts-based Coalition for Marriage will hold a press conference in Room B2 at the State House in Boston on Wednesday, March 10, at 10 a.m. The press conference will feature African-American pastors from across the nation who will refute homosexual activists who say their campaign for the right to "marry" is similar to black Americans' struggle for civil rights in the 1960's. This event will take place the day before the Massachusetts State Legislature is expected to vote on a constitutional amendment defining marriage in that state. This event is open to credentialed members of the news media and Legislators only.

WHAT: Black pastors from around the nation compare the push for same-sex "marriage" to the struggle for civil rights.
