Equality For All has just launched a new website for opponents of Proposition 8. Maybe I’m the last one to find out about it. There’s lots of good information on the site. Well done.
This past weekend the No On Prop 8 folks held a fundraiser. Did pretty well. $1.6 million! Yeay! Major kudos to SEIU and CTA as well as the individual donors who made the evening a smashing success.
Then again, there’s the other side. The California Catholic Conference (i.e. the bishops) issued a statement urging a yes vote by their parishioners.
And the Grossmont Union High School District voted 4-0 with one abstention to support the ban.
Now, this could be fun. The people supporting Prop 8 and the ban on same sex marriage have hired a local flack to promote the initiative and manage the media, as has been reported elsewhere, no doubt. They’re hosting an open house in Irvine near John Wayne Airport on August 14. Details here. Wouldn’t it be fa hoot to jam their heads? One big problem, though. The building’s a high rise tower and no free parking. The event itself is free. Still, to pay them a visit….
OK, serious, now. The Yes on 8 folks are still raising more money than we opponents are. We’re just not so far behind. The presidential race, congressional races, state and local races — it’s all so much. But we can’t let up which is what the Yes people are banking on. No rest for the weary. We must fight on. Please help.
