Marriage equality rally held at the Capitol

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Local supporters of marriage equality held a rally at the state Capitol in downtown Atlanta on Monday.

The "Light the Way to Justice Rally" was one of 200 rallies that took place across the country.

The rallies were held ahead of the Supreme Court's plan to hear oral arguments on California's Proposition 8, a ban on same-sex marriage.

On Wednesday, the high court will hear arguments against the Defense of Marriage Act, a federal law that defines marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman.

Organizers of the rally will host a town hall meeting on Wednesday to talk about court proceedings in the both the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8.
