SALINAS, Calif. – Following November’s voter-approved passing of Proposition 8, the protests and rallies in support of gay marrriage continue statewide.
One couple is taking their protest peacefully to the streets, walking from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Valerie Paget and Tracie Jones met in 1998 and were married earlier this year. The two are walking to spread the message of civil rights, and what was lost after California voters ruled against gay marriage.
On Monday, the couple traveled by foot through the City of Salinas. During their march, they carry with them sandwich board style signs, and a petition for supporters to sign. That petition is in conjunction with the Courage Campaign and has gained near 300,000 signatures.
