Vigil Tomorrow at Batesville Daily Guard

The Center for Artistic Revolution (CAR), a statewide LGBT equality group in Arkansas, is holding a vigil outside of the Batesville Daily Guard tomorrow calling on the paper to change their discriminatory policy that prevents committed LGBT couples from being recognized in free obituaries.

The vigil kicks off tomorrow morning at 9am at the Guard’s office - 258 W. Main St., Batesville, AR. For more information, visit CAR’s Facebook page. To volunteer, email

HRC, GLAAD and CAR have partnered to advocate for the Guard to change their policy. To add your name to the over 2200 Americans who have sent letters to the Guard, sign our petition now. Last week, HRC also took out a full-page ad in the Guard calling on them to get in line with public opinion and revise their outdated policy.
