Thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Californians and allies will be converging on the California State Legislature to lobby for the overturn of Proposition 8 which prevents same sex couples from the right of marriage. Previously, the California Court ruled in favor of that right this past summer until the election in November when it was overturn by a relatively slim vote margin.
There has been much debate about the constitutionality of such an amendment and growing support to negate it. Individuals interested in registering and participating in the lobbying effort on Feb. 17th in Sacramento can visit 2009 Marriage Lobby Day .
Those interested need to register by February 12, 2009 at 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
