California Take Action on Marriage Equality!

One Million Signatures Needed by April 5, 2010

Click here to download the petitions (with instructions) (PDF)

In November 2008 Proposition 8 amended the California Constitution, taking the right to marry away from same-sex couples. This injustice should never have come to pass.

Now it's time to repeal Prop 8 and restore equality.

To place a new initiative on the November 2010 ballot we need one million California voters to sign the official petition. You can download it by clicking here or you can visit and download the PDF there.

WRB Councillor Clarinda Ross and AEA staffer Richard Ostlund joined hundreds of other volunteers in a statewide call to action. Please join your fellow Californians in communities across the state to support the fight for Marriage Equality by repealing Prop 8. For more information, visit Help us reach our goal of 1 million signatures!

Voters cannot sign online or by email. Every signature must be gathered the old fashioned way, with pen and paper. That's where you come in. Under state law we are given only a few months to gather the required one million signatures, and we need your help.

What You Can Do

Everything you need to do your part is right here. Download and print the petition form and get started collecting signatures click here to download the rules of signature collection. You can even hand in completed petitions to Equity staff member Richard Ostlund in the West Hollywood office. Click here for Richard's information.

Be a part of making history!
