Online rally to overturn Prop 8
Overturn 8: Online Rally Supporting the Prop 8 Legal Challenge
THIS EVENT RUNS ALL MONTH LONG FROM FEBRUARY 3-MARCH 5. BECAUSE THIS IS AN ONLINE RALLY, YOU CAN JOIN US FROM ANYWHERE ACROSS THE GLOBE!
The goal: As lead counsel in the Prop 8 legal challenge, NCLR is working to educate people about the importance of overturning Prop 8—a radical and unprecedented change to the California Constitution that puts all Californians at risk. Oral argument is scheduled for March 5, 2009.
The National Center for Lesbian Rights
OUR MISSION AND GOALS:As lead counsel in the Prop 8 legal challenge, we have a simple but powerful idea: create ONLINE support for our Prop 8 legal challenge by spreading our important message on Facebook. The goal is to find new ways to be visible and educate Americans about how Prop 8 puts all Californians at risk. This is the first time the initiative process has successfully been used to change the California Constitution to take away a fundamental freedom from a particular group and to mandate government discrimination against a minority. As lead counsel in this challenge, we are doing everything we can to make sure that Prop 8 is overturned, but we need your help.
