Mobile Equality will be holding a rally outside of the Mobile Government Plaza calling on the Alabama Judicial Ethics Commission to remove Alabama Justice Roy Moore from public office.
Supporters are calling for Chief Justice Moore’s removal after he interfered with federal law by ordering Alabama probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, which was struck down as unconstitutional by U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. Granade and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics instruct state judges to “respect and comply with the law” and promote “public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring supportive signs and banners.
