    In 1987, Out and Outraged, a National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights took to the Supreme Court to promote the visibility of movement concerns and advocate for justice. The For Love, Life & Liberation Civil Disobedience handbook includes both the manifesto of organizers and the relevant tactic information needed to conduct the action. The handbooks provided a history of the movement, solidarity, and major concerns including the AIDs epidemic, and decriminalization of sexuality. The book also had the scenarios for the six-day event such as check-in and non-violence training. In addition to guidelines for the march such as no weapons, no drugs, no property destruction. The risk of arrest was also made abundantly clear in the handbook along with the exact charges, financial penalties, and penal penalties the action may accrue for participants. The C.D. handbook was meant to prepare participants and unify and strengthen the movement and action.
