This just in from EQ CA…You can 'TAKE ACTION' to support our California Legislators in oveturning PROP 8. Needs to be done by Dec. 19 ….for some reason.. Though I am not sure how these resolutions are tied to the CSC case.
Urge Your Representatives
to Support the Invalidation of Prop 8
Overturn Prop 8
Two Equality California-sponsored resolutions introduced today would make it official state policy that Prop 8 should be overturned.
Write your legislators now to urge them to support the invalidation of Prop 8 and vote for Leno’s Senate Resolution 7 and Ammiano’s Assembly Resolution (number to be assigned).
The proponents of Prop 8 usurped the role of the Legislature by putting the right for same-sex couples to marry directly on the ballot.
Two Equality California-sponsored resolutions introduced today will make it official state policy, when they are approved by the Legislature, that Prop 8 should be overturned.
Prop 8 eliminates the fundamental right to marry and allows a slim majority to take away the equal protections of a minority, which violates one of the founding principles of our Constitution. The resolutions state the measure should have been approved by a two-thirds vote in the Legislature before going to voters.
Urge your representatives to support these resolutions. If you are registered with EQCA’s Action Center, reply to this email. Or register today at www.eqca.org/actioncenter.
On December 19, proponents of Prop 8 will file their briefs with the California Supreme Court. So, ask everyone you know to write their representative by going to www.eqca.org/actioncenter by December 19.
EQCA will do its part to make sure we have broad support for these resolutions.
But we need you to do yours. Email your representatives now at www.eqca.org/actioncenter and ask your friends and family join you.
California lawmakers need to hear from you-their constituents-that our state should be a state of hope, prosperity and equality for all.
