Forum & Community Discussion

What Next in the Struggle for Marriage Equality?


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. 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.


Speakers will include activists from various organizations fighting for equal marriage and LGBT liberation, and will address issues such as what the next steps for the movement should be and the possibility of a national march on Washington. Join us for a night of discussion on how we can fight back and win full equality!
