With only 40 minutes to plan, our Columbus North High School Chapter in Indiana turned out seven of their members to a demonstration protesting their county clerk’s refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite yesterday’s federal court ruling.
The protest was widely covered by the media and hugely successful and, by 1:30pm, all three county judges had ordered the Clerk’s office to begin issuing marriage licences to same-sex couples. Love just won in Bartholomew County, Indiana and it was, in part, thanks to the work of High School Democrats and countless other activists.
