|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.

Thank you for caring and wanting to get involved! I was just reading an entry from a friend of mine in AZ who is discouraged that people in AZ aren't protesting as strongly as they are in CA. I don't get it myself. However, in the long run, I do believe that this is just another step on the road to eventual strong human rights for all.
And remember, if nothing else, you can make offerings. ;)
