Yesterday, on 99 Problems, Sarah Silverman expressed a problem: The fact that we don’t have gay marriage in this country is embarrassing. Willow Witte, co-founder of Join the Impact, provides a solution to the problem: Stand Up. Be Visible. Work Together Against ALL Oppression…We ALL Have a Voice, Let’s Use Them!
What an amazing video from Sean Chapin, whom I regretfully did not get a chance to meet when I was in SF on Thursday. Sean has captured this movement on film in many wonderful ways and has been nominated for an award because of his use of video to push this movement forward! This video captures the Eve of Justice that occured on Wednesday March 4th. It makes a profound statement regarding how far we have come, and how far we have yet to go. There are many sacrifices along the way, which Cleve Jones expresses as he speaks. What we must take from this is that with our hard work and our love will come success! WE WILL PREVAIL!
There are MANY events going on surrounding the March 5th opening arguments and this video highlights some of the biggest ones. MANY grassroots orgs are coming together to make this happen. Our COMMUNITY is comming together to make this happen. Come to SF if you can on the 4th and 5th. If you cannot, please light a candle on the 4th and wear white on the 5th to show your support for the 18,000 marriages in limbo, and the many marriages to come in the future.
The Courage Campaign never ceases to amaze me! California is filled with some amazing orgs, but when it comes to Prop 8, the Courage Campaign always knows how to take the message of the damage Prop 8 has caused, and deliver it in a way that really hits home for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation. So here is a BIG THANK YOU to the Courage Campaign for putting together this inspirational campaign and taking our movement another step in the right direction!
