According to a news release from the Vote No On Proposition 102 campaign, religious leaders from several denominations will hold a press conference tomorrow, Tuesday, September 23rd.

Citing the need to clearly express their opposition to Proposition 102 (Arizona's discriminatory anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment proposal), Southern Arizona faith leaders will gather to speak to the press and the public.

The event will begin at noon inside the Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church sanctuary, 2331 E Adams Street in Tucson.

Leaders from the Disciples of Christ, United Church of Christ, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Jewish Reformed traditions, and others will process into the sanctuary in formal clerical vestments at noon.

Some of the speakers will include:

Rev. Pedro Goycolea, pastor of Iglesia Cristiana Centro Vida, a Spanish-speaking congregation in Sahuarita.
Father Frank Bergen, who has served as a priest in both the Roman Catholic Jesuit Order and the Episcopal Church.
Rabbi Helen Cohn, a Jewish rabbi who is spiritual leader of Congregation M’kor Hayim in Tucson.
Rev. John Fife, former national moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Rev. Anna Bell, minister at Mosaic United Methodist Church, Tucson.
Kelly Frieders, a married Republican mother of triplets, and an active Christian lay person.

Everyone is invited so if you live in Tucson, stop by on your lunch hour and help show support for these courageous leaders.
