Summerhays organized two events celebrating traditional marriage last year and wants to do another one this year.

For her part, Jensen, the Pleasant Grove mother, said she's going to pass on the information she received Wednesday and at another meeting last week, starting with her own family. She's also taking to Facebook and Twitter. So far, she said, she hasn’t received many "likes" or comments to her posts.

"People, I think, are too afraid of offending someone. It's really sad because we're giving up our freedom of speech by doing that," she said.

Jensen said she's doesn't worry anymore about offending someone or being called names because making herself heard is worth much more than that.

"It's come to the point that I have to do it," she said. "I have to start speaking up."
