Later this week, Americans will be in the nation's capital to make a statement for marriage and judicial activism.

The National Organization for Marriage's second annual March for Marriage is set for Thursday, June 19, in D.C.  Given the climate in the country over the past months, spokesman Chris Plante tells OneNewsNow this year's march is all the more important.

“It will be a huge statement to the U.S. Supreme Court, to the Congress and to the mainstream media that Americans still stand for marriage as one man and one woman and that every child deserves both a mother and a father,” he says.

Thousands of marriage supporters from throughout the country will take to the streets after a rally where they will hear from noted speakers such as Senator Santorum, Governor Huckabee and many others.

“It will be a day in which America actually takes a stand and tries to turn the clock back on marriage and turn back the tide of judicial activism that has been occurring where individual justices are imposing their own individual wills on entire states in redefining marriage,” he explains.

For those who can't attend, National Organization for Marriage is conducting a virtual march on the event’s website. People can hold local marriage rallies or at state capitals to make it clear that they also stand for traditional marriage.
