Our local affiliate was stunned when we were ejected from the parade at the last minute. So we wrote the editor, and that was published (see next article below this one to read that letter). The editor wrote a reply a couple days later in which he/she acknowledged the importance of the Move To Amend cause. So, we thought that was that.
Below is the letter to the Editor of The Daily Courier, Prescott, Arizona, published July 4, 2017.
