"A March Against Hate has been organized after two members of the Shady Ladies softball team were brutally attacked in Downtown Austin on Friday, February 19th, 2010," reports Man of Austin.
Man of Austin:
The Austin March Against Hate will take place at 2pm on Saturday, February 27 starting at Oilcan Harry’s, 211 W. 4th St, and ending at City Hall at 3pm. Organizers ask that you join the march and wear your jersey or t-shirt belonging to a GLBT team or group. Shady Ladies t-shirts will also be available for purchase to wear on Saturday for $10.
