Full Equality now!
Separate is Not Equal!

Fed Up? Make Your Voice Heard - Speak Out!

On May 26, the CA Supreme Court upheld the bigoted Prop 8, denying same-sex couples the same social and economic rights granted to heterosexual couples. LGBTQ workers still face discrimination in every aspect of society in the U.S, including on the job. As the politicians and the courts capitulate to reaction and further sell out the LGBTQ community, what is needed now is an independent, unified civil rights movement.

Civil Rights are non-negotiable! Desegregation and women’s suffrage were both products of grassroots civil rights movements directed against a system of discrimination, not products of a popular vote. Prop 8 will only be overturned through mass opposition in the streets. The demonstrations today are a step in that direction, but we can’t stop here or wait for another referendum. We must stay in the streets if we are going to win.

Speak Out on June 3 to demand Full Equality Now!
