About 50 protesters braved the rain Thursday night to demonstrate against the ninth World Congress of Families and its definition of family.
The demonstrators — who marched outside the Grand America Hotel, where the organization is meeting this week — carried signs that read "WFC Spreads Hate Not Truth," "Love Makes a Family" and "Don't Diss Adoptive Parents."
The World Congress of Families promotes "the natural family" of a married mother and father and their children, and it says it works to strengthen all families.
But critics say the organization hurts families and supports laws in other countries that criminalize homosexuality. Restore Our Humanity, which organized Thursday's demonstration, says it strongly opposes the WCF message of exclusion and divisiveness.
