|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.

It sounds like no one knows if pre-Prop 8 marriages are valid or not.
I'm fully aware of how conservative the outliers are in CA: Ohio has an odd situation where we're *really* liberal in some parts of the state, and *really* conservative in others. Cincinnati is our local heavily-populated Republican stronghold here.

I think this is common with any state that has a large city as well as lots of lesser populated land. Washington & Oregon are like that as well.
