I'm part of the group of community organizers putting together reponses up and down California to the 9th Circuit decision on Prop 8. I'll be at the morning vigil in front of the courthouse on 7th and Mission, hope to see you there. And I'm one of the organizers of the 5pm rally on the day of the decision at 17th and Castro, across from the Castro and Market MUNI stop. Join us to, hopefully, celebrate..
COMMUNITY EVENTS ON DAY NINTH CIRCUIT ANNOUNCES PROP 8 DECISION
Please join same-sex couples, LGBTIQ people, friends, family, and clergy for 2 events on the day that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals announces its decision regarding Proposition 8. The Ninth Circuit has completed all hearings and briefing in the case and could rule at any time.
9:45 AM COURTHOUSE PROP 8 DECISION: Gather on the steps of the Ninth Circuit Federal Courthouse, 95 7th Street (at Mission), San Francisco to receive the ruling (anticipated at 10:00 AM). Afterwards, we will proceed to San Francisco City Hall, where clergy will be available to bless couples who are not able to marry because of Prop. 8. (Even if the Ninth Circuit rules in our favor, it is highly likely that there will be a stay on the decision so that no marriages could take place immediately.)
5:00 PM COMMUNITY RALLY: Gather at Market & 17th (across from Castro & Market) San Francisco for a community rally. We will either celebrate or protest the decision, and either way, rededicate our resolve to achieve full equality nationwide.
