NAMPA -- Residents gathered Monday night at the Nampa City Hall as part of a statewide vigil for the Add the Words movement.

Demonstrators lit candles, stood holding signs, and covered their mouths to show solidarity for the cause.

Supporters want Idaho legislators to add protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation to the Idaho Human Rights Act.

I just want to remind everyone that we have choices, and our representatives aren't going to know what we want unless we let them know, and I think that this is just a gentle loving way to say come on guys come on get it together. said Nampa resident, Mary Browning.

Activists came together at the state capitol in Boise, and across the state to show support.
