10:20 am - Prop 8?
Gov. Schwarzenegger indicates "We will maybe undo" Prop. 8.

I've been thinking about this Prop, and what it meant, really. And what it has meant to me has really been, "Okay, I've clearly been talking too much and doing too little about this obvious breech of human rights." I've watched things pass for far too long.

I've been looking for ways to get involved locally (though it appears that local options are mostly out: four years of Ohio having discrimination enshrined in our constitution has reduced the options for that, clearly and expectedly). Nationally, I'm not sure *how* to get involved.

So I open it up to the folk on my friends list: Any ideas who I should contact, what groups are available, and what is needed? Where does one start?

I'm tired of being angry about this and not finding any way to do something about it.

I don't know what specifically you might be interested in getting involved with, but a person I have taken some inspiration from is Father Geoff Farrow. He's a Catholic Priest who got kicked out of the church because he came out against prop 8. He has a blog at http://fathergeofffarrow.blogspot.com/ that I read from time to time. He seems to respond to emails pretty well (though i have not personally contacted him). He might be a good jumping off point? I like reading his arguments because if I want to effect change in the world, then I have to be able to talk the talk and know what sorts of language is used in the way people talk about these issues. Up to you though.
