LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Kentucky Faith Leaders for Fairness joined with the Fairness Coalition and Southerners for the Freedom to Marry to call for support of same-gender marriage and statewide anti-discrimination protections in the commonwealth on Monday.

The event was co-chaired by Rev. Bojangles Blanchard (Cooperative Baptist Fellowship) and Rev. Derek Penwell (Christian Church, Disciples of Christ).

The event was at 1 p.m. at Douglass Boulevard Christian Church.

Kentucky Faith Leaders for Fairness said they were inspired by the United Church of Christ's lawsuit for marriage equality in North Carolina and feel called to publicly express the principle that, "Every individual and every family has the God-given right to be treated with dignity and respect," shared Rev. Blanchard.
