This is important. It's about equality. It's about church and state. It's about love. This is a National protest. It is happening, tomorrow, all over the country. JOIN THE IMPACT has schedules for every city in every state. You don't have to be in SF. Protest in your town. Print out posters from PROTEST PROP 8! POSTERS or wistfuljane. And Go Down To City Hall. If your down at the SF Civic Center, look for us, we'll be the ones with signs, protesting.

Fight The H8

From Protest 8 in SF:

Event: Marriage Equality and GLBTQI Rights Rally
Location: San Francisco City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Pl.
Time: 10:30 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

Join the Impact SF calls on all those who find Proposition 8 unacceptable to join us for a protest Saturday, November 15 at 10:30 at City Hall in conjunction with the National Day of Protest. Speakers will provide perspective and action plans for restoring the rights of all people to marry, as advocated by millions of Californians including Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In coordination with protests at city halls all over the nation, the rally will chart the way forward for equal rights guaranteed to us by the United States Constitution. The diversity of the civil rights movement will be on display, showing the nation that this struggle includes all of us, not just those desiring same-sex weddings. We are reaching out to all, especially members of groups that have suffered oppression and discrimination.

We support the right of individuals to have whatever religious beliefs they wish, but are prepared to confront institutions of bigotry and hate. We demand the reversal of the bigot Proposition 8, as a major step in the struggle for civil rights that will continue until discrimination on the basis of sexual and gender orientation is eliminated entirely.

We will be asking for outreach efforts and will be mounting a campaign for all Americans to publicly publicly show their support for same-sex marriages that have taken place by signing an online holiday card celebrating their union. The protest will provide our movement with a huge local network on which we can organize future protest actions.

Featured speakers include

State Senator Carole Migden
State Senator-Elect Mark Leno
Stuart Gaffney and John Lewis; Plaintiffs in the California marriage case
Mark Oliver and Clark Pingree; Representing “Mormons for Marriage”
Rev. Dr. Penny Nixon
Rev. Dr. Dorsey Blake
and many more. Our speakers and organizers will be available for media interviews at the event.
