Rights group plans vigil at Capitol

Equality Alabama is sponsoring a vigil for victims of hate crimes to be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 18, 2007, on the steps of the State Capitol.

The guest speaker will be the Rev. Robert Graetz, a longtime civil rights activist.

The vigil is held each February near the anniversary of the murder of Billy Jack Gaither in Sylacauga.

Equality Alabama supports rights for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgendered citizens through education and activities.
