Scoop: WHEN WE RISE - Part IV on ABC - Today, March 3, 2017
Part IV Its 2008, and in the face of Californias Proposition 8 stripping away the right of gays and lesbians to marry, a newly energized Cleve inspires a younger generation to organize a massive march on Washington D.C. to demand full, federal LGBTQ equality in all matters. Meanwhile Roma uses her lessons learned as a womens and LGBTQ activist to fight for healthcare for all in San Francisco. And as Ken struggles to reconcile his sexual orientation with his love of God, he recruits his old friend Cecilia Chung, now a health commissioner, to get the city to help fund a meal program for one of the first LGBTQ inclusive churches in the nation. With newfound political pull, Cleve joins a rag-tag group of activists attempting to overturn Californias discriminatory Prop 8 at the U.S. Supreme Court. Ken finds his calling in helping bridge the gay/straight religious divide, and Roma defies her youthful distaste for the institution of marriage and proposes to the woman shes loved for decades, Diane.
