Get the Word Out that Prop 8 is Wrong, Unfair, and Must Be Defeated
|October 25, 2008||Posted by jamie under Activism||
I just signed up for volunteer shifts for every day starting Thursday, October 30th through election day, Tuesday, November 4th because I want to know on November 5th that I did everything I could to persuade voters that the state of California should not treat me and other LGBT folks any different than anyone else under civil law. Please join me … take a few days off of work and renew your soul by volunteering for THE civil rights issue of our time!
For you. For your friends. For your family. For what is right.
We need you to be 1 of 10,000. Get the word out that Prop 8 is wrong, it’s unfair, and it must be defeated.
From Thursday, October 30 through Tuesday, November 4, we need 10,000 volunteers on the ground—5,000 on Election Day alone.
Sign up in the ZIP code in which you want to volunteer. We will follow up with you with time and location information.
Picture it: 10,000 people from Eureka to San Diego–standing together, waving signs and talking to voters. This is our moment to show California and the nation that we will not tolerate unfairness and inequality.
I know I can count on you on Election Day. Take the day off—or as much of the day as possible.
And we need you every day starting Thursday, October 30, in high visibility locations across the state to make our presence known.
This is our legacy, and it has never been more urgent. It is exhausting yet exhilarating. If all of us give more and do more, I know we will be part of a successful effort.
Now is the time to assert what we know to be true: that Prop 8 is unfair, unjust, and unnecessary. And it must be defeated. Join us, as we change lives, as we change the world!
To our legacy,
No on Prop 8
