Cross-Reference: Polygamy Day, August 19, polygamy activism

On August 19, 2012, consenting adult pro-polygamists throughout America are celebrating "Polygamy Day 12."

August   19th   of   every   year   is   the   official   Polygamy   Day   ®.       Consenting-adult   polygamy   rights   supporters   have   been   annually   celebrating   this   specific   date   ever   since   the   very   first   "Polygamy   Day   1"   eleven   years   ago   on   August   19,   2001.     As   that   first   celebration   occurred   in   the   "Year   1"   of   the   new   millennium,   each   following   "Polygamy   Day"   has   since   been   numerically   identified   right   up   to   the   current   "Polygamy   Day   12"   on   August   19,   2012. 
The   very   first   celebration   started   as   a   get-together   in   Old   Orchard   Beach,   Maine,   among   non-Mormon,   non-Muslim   polygamy   rights   activists.     Since   then,   the   annual   celebration   grew   into   a   widespread   and   religiously-neutral   individual   celebration   around   the   country   among   all   forms   of   consenting-adult   pro-polygamists. 
Polygamy   Day   ®   is   promoted   by   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.     The   corporation   was   officially   formed   in   2002   in   Maine.   The   federal   trademark   registration   was   filed   on   "Polygamy   Day   6"   (in   2006).   In   an   unexpected   irony,   the   U.S.   Patent   and   Trademark   Office   officially   registered   the   corporation’s   trademark,   Polygamy   Day   ®,   on   June   26,   2007   -   the   fourth   anniversary   of   the   U.S.   Supreme   Court   decision,   Lawrence   v.   Texas.    
Activists   individually   use   each   August   19th   to   specifically   recognize   the   preceding   year's   political,   legal,   and   promotional   successes   in   the   progress   toward   freedom   for   consenting-adult   polygamists.     Individual   strategies   for   the   next   year   of   polygamy   rights   activism   are   also   considered   and   planned. 
Information   about   Polygamy   Day,   Inc.   and   a   generalized   history   of   Polygamy   Day   ®   are   available   online   at     Specific   news   from   over   the   previous   year   impacting   consenting   adult   polygamists   and   leading   up   to   "Polygamy   Day   12"   appears   at 
With   progress   over   the   previous   year   providing   hope   and   successful   tools   for   specific   activism   in   the   fight   for   freedom,   supporters   throughout   America,   of   unrelated   consenting-adult   polygamy,   have   great   reason   to   celebrate   this   August   19,   2012   -   "Polygamy   Day   12,"   the   twelfth   year   of   celebrations!
