TAKE ACTION: Schwarzenegger & Brown under attack over Prop. 8


Right-wing, anti-equality groups are targeting Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democratic Attorney General Brown, urging them to appeal Judge Walker's historic decision. We need to make sure they don't succeed.

At a time when the state is strapped for cash, our leaders should be concentrating resources on keeping teachers, firefighters and police on the job, not defending discrimination in court.

So far the Governor and Attorney General's offices have stood with the majority of Californians who now support marriage for same-sex couples.

Urge the Governor and Attorney General to keep doing the right thing: not defending bigotry in court.

Letter to
Attorney General, California Jerry Brown
California Governor
I urge you to stand on the side of equality, with the majority of Californians who support the right for same-sex couples to marry. Please continue to refuse to defend Proposition 8 before the courts.

Thank you for refusing to defend Proposition 8 in federal court thus far, and for urging the district court to reject the stay of its decision, paving the way for same-sex couples to marry. And thank you for not using any of the state’s limited resources to defend discrimination when we need to keep as many teachers, nurses, law enforcement officials, firefighters and other civil servants on the job as we can.

Please, keep California on the side of fairness and equality, by standing strong in your refusal to defend Prop. 8.
