Protestors gathered at the governor's mansion at 6:00 this morning to protest HB1228, the so-called "religious conscience" bill. The group was led by Rev. Marie Mainard O'Connell (on the left right in the picture above). Photographer Brian Chilson was on hand (you can see more pictures at his Facebook page). 

The protestors made reference to the state's history of segregation, using artist V.L. Cox's "End Hate" installation of doors

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
