On June 24th, 2011, the New York State Senate passed Gov. Cuomo's Marriage Equality Act. But there is still so much work to be done throughout the country. Broadway Impact is hard at work to make sure ALL American's will have this right, and the Broadway Impact marathon team is doing their part to make sure this amazing charity has the resources to fight the good fight.
The ING NYC Marathon is on Sunday, November 4th. The Broadway Impact Marathon team consists of Jim Alcantara, Patrick Cafferty, John Denning, Scott Johnson, Nick Lowe, Jimmy Ludwig, Marvi Medower, Sean Martin, Rich Martino, Kelsey Nash, Brian Sears, Nick Spangler, Nicole Tilzer and Jacob Widman.
Broadway Impact is the only grassroots organization of the theatre community and its fans mobilized in support of marriage equality. Tony Award-?nominees Rory O'Malley (The Book of Mormon) and Gavin Creel (HAIR) and Production Coordinator Jenny Kanelos founded the organization in direct response to the passage of California's Proposition 8 in November 2008. Currently, Broadway Impact, in partnership with AFER, licenses and coordinates readings of Dustin Lance Black's "8" at regional, community and university theaters around the world. Broadway Impact was the recipient of the 2009 Human Rights Campaign Community Award and proudly operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. www.broadwayimpact.com
