Repeal Prop 8!

Are you registered to vote in California? If so, you can help put an initiative to repeal Prop 8 on the November 2010 ballot by printing out this single-page PDF file, signing it, maybe asking some friends and family members to sign it too (print more copies if you need space for more than four signatures), filling out the section that indicates that you are the person who circulated the petition, and then mailing it to the address specified on that signed printout. Every signature helps!

It's very wrong for minority rights to be subject to majority vote. But here they already have been, and waiting for the federal case to go to the U.S. Supreme Court will take quite a while - and with Scalia and Thomas and Roberts and Alito on the U.S. Supreme Court, we can't be certain of winning the case. In the meantime, every election represents another opportunity to repeal Prop 8. If we put this on the ballot, the worst that can happen is that we lose and our rights stay exactly as unequal as they are now. If we don't put it on the ballot, we're guaranteeing that our rights stay exactly as unequal as they are now. So let's put it on the ballot, so that at least we have a chance again.
