Activists Call for Immediate National Response to Prop 8 Ruling
Activists have begun organizing an immediate nationwide response to the California Supreme Court's ruling on Proposition 8, whenever it might come. The Court is required to rule within 90 days of the hearing but a decision could come at any time.
Robin Tyler, one of the original plaintiffs (with her wife Diane Olson) in the case that won same-sex marriage for Californians, is spearheading the action with co-organizer Andy Thayer and others have joined: "National groups including, Join the Impact, Centerlink, (the National Association of LGBT Community centers), Metropolitan Community Churches & others have signed on to help organize across the nation. 'We've seen a tremendous outpouring from LGBT and allied individuals and organizations who wanted to join together in unity the night of the decision regardless of the outcome,' said Tyler."
Activists are planning for a unified effort, whether it be a protest or celebration. Those wanting information or are interested in organizing the movement in their city can go to the Day of Decision website.
