Saturday, May 19, 2007. Location: Fools Foundation – 1025 19th St, Sacramento. Off of K St between 19th & 20th next to the back end of Old Spaghetti Factory.

Equality California, Shiny Object, Fools Foundation, and the Sacramento International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival present a fundraiser for Equality California with a very special screening of the documentary We the People!

We The People could not have come along at a better time in American history. At a time when Spain and Canada have embraced the concept and legalized same sex marriages, the United States finds itself teetering on the edge of conflict.

We The People promotes understanding and compassion and attempts to bridge the chasm of intolerance that divides this great nation. It provides an opportunity to meet same sex couples and their families, with the hope that a greater understanding and acceptance will be born based upon reality not upon political rhetoric. We The People isn't a film about a minority group; it's a film about people you know!

West Sacramento mayor, and recently-announced state Assembly candidate Christopher Cabaldon will be in attendance and speaking following the film. We’re also working on lining up one more special guest speaker. EQCA is currently working on some other events for the evening as well.

Please note: doors open at 6:30 PM on this evening, and advance tickets will be for sale (website for that coming soon - please check http://www.shiny-object.com/screenings/ for a link). Advance tickets are recommended. Suggested minimum donation for admission is $10.00, sliding up to $20.00 depending on what you can afford.

Movies on a Big Screen gift certificates will not be accepted for this event.

Equality California is a great and active organization, working towards reducing discrimination and intolerance directed towards LGBT Californians. We urge you to take a look at their site to learn a bit more about what they do:
