Prop 8: Not another year

    1. Sponsored by

      Human Rights Campaign

In the latest twist in the saga to overturn Prop 8 – the ban on marriage for same-sex couples in California – the state Supreme Court has announced it will review a legal question that could delay the case for another year! Our allies at the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) continue to fight Prop 8 in court but they need our help.

While Prop 8 remains on the books, thousands of families are denied their basic equality guaranteed by the constitution.

HRC sent a letter to the California Supreme Court asking them to speed up their process. Please stand up for LGBT families and add your name to these letters by filling out the form on the left.

      Please remove Prop 8. Please eliminate Prop 8. Prop 8 is an extremely hurtful, extremely painful, extremely unfruitful, extremely unconstructive, extremely unhealthy, and extremely inhumane policy. Please have compassion, have sympathy, and have understanding to all the gays and lesbians people. Thank You.

      Sincerely, Annie

      Gays are people too and they deserve the same amount of freedom to marry as everyone else does! Love is love!

      I recommend those interested in LGBT issues also take a look at the petition in re to the comments made by Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan!

      I have a girlfriend I love very, very much and one day I would like to marry her like any other loving couple would be able to do. I don't want us to have to go through life in a world where inequality and homophobia are still okay until the day we die.
