Classy actress and UN Messenger of Peace Charlize Theron is taking to the streets and standing up for same-sex marriage. 

Theron is teaming up with The Courage Campaign and more than 70 other organizations to help promote Meet in the Middle for Equality —  a rally that aims to raise awareness about same-sex marriage. 

Billed as “a day of dignity after the California Supreme Court releases its decision on Proposition 8, ” the event will take place in Fresno, California at 1 p.m this Saturday.

Theron said:

“We know the people whose lives are on the line – those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender – will be there, but we need everyone there. Especially straight people. While we don’t know when the Supreme Court will rule exactly, we know it will be within the next four weeks. Californians need to be prepared to commit right now to go to Fresno on the Saturday after the decision is announced, no matter what that decision may be. The battle for equality has to be fought in Middle America – in places like Fresno, California – not just in gay-friendly cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles. California’s Central Valley population is far more reflective of national attitudes towards LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) equality – and until we engage the communities of Middle America, we will not achieve full equality in California.”
