California Attorney General asks Courts to Reverse Prop 8

In a surprise move yesterday, California Attorney General, Jerry Brown ask the state Supreme Court to overturn the passage of Prop 8 in California.

He is taking stand against Prop 8. Jerry Brown acknowledges that the passage of Proposition 8 violates basic rights for everyone found in our state's Constitution. Taking away the rights of same-sex couples to marry is discrimination against a minority group.

"Proposition 8 must be invalidated because the amendment process cannot be used to extinguish fundamental constitutional rights without compelling justification" said Brown.

He will have a fight ahead of him though! Kenneth Starr (of Whitewater Fame) filed for the Yes on 8 campaign for the courts to uphold the passage of this discriminating proposition.

Tonight is LIGHT UP THE NIGHT! join us at Union Square in San Francisco at 5pm for Candlelight Vigil. Bring a Candle!

Light Up the Night SF! Dec 20

Come join us this Saturday, December 20th, in Union Square, San Francisco for LIGHT UP THE NIGHT. This is a silent candle light vigil for Marriage Equality and the Repeal of Prop 8.

Light Up The Night • SF is a candlelight vigil for marriage equality, for the repeal of Prop 8, and for LGBT rights across the nation. We welcome all individuals and families who support these causes. The passage of Prop 8 and similar measures around the country has recreated second-class citizenship in the United States. It is a broad civil-rights issue which has implications for all Americans, regardless of race, creed, color, or orientation.

Please join with us, and stand up against injustice.

Light Up The Night • SF is a positive, holiday event that will be coordinated with similar vigils happening at the same time in hundreds of cities across the country. In San Francisco, Light Up The Night takes place at Union Square, on Saturday, 20 December 2008, from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. Please bring your own candles!

Light Up The Night • SF is sponsored by Join the Impact, supported by Equality California, the HRC, Marriage Equality USA, and many other nationwide LGBT rights organizations. For this event to succeed, and send a positive, unified image, we need you. Please RSVP to let us know you are coming. Print out flyers and help spread the word (in Spanish, too!)

Light Up The Night • SF welcomes you to join a movement for change, invites you to become a part of history, and asks you to stand united for one hour of your holiday season with thousands of others who share your views.

Remember Rosa Parks. Today.

Today is the day in history in which Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus to give up her seat for a white passenger. This significant individual protest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa Parks has been called the "Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement".

Remember what Rosa Parks represented and the civil liberties and equality she fought for. Remember the strength she had as an individual to spark a civil rights movement that changed society for the better.
