CA Legislators to vote for repeal of Prop. 8 - Calling a Protest!!!

On Tuesday, February 17th at 10:30 am, The California State Assembly Judiciary Committee and then at 12:30, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on Proposition 8. The committees will be considering crafting a joint
resolution encouraging the California State Supreme Court to overturn Prop 8. By issuing the resolution the Assembly will officially express its opposition to Proposition 8, calling for its repeal, and stating that it was an "improper revision" to the state constitution. There are two initiatives up for vote - SR7, and HR5. Read SR7 here. Read HR5 here.
This blatantly flies in the faces of 52% of California voters! The issue of "gay marriage" was voted on TWICE, and both times, "gay marriage" LOST! We cannot let the legislators misrepresent the voice of the people in this way!

What can we do?

1) It's a holiday weekend - hop in your car and make a drive to Sacramento for the hearings!
Tuesday, February 17th at the state capitol in Sacramento. The Assembly hearing will be in room 4202 at 10:30 am. The Senate hearing will be in room 4203 at 12:30pm. By attending you will send a visible signal to the committee members in support of the family.

2) If you can't attend the rally, then pick up your phone and make some calls!
Call the members of the committees and fax letters asking them to vote no on HR5 and SR7
