The NAACP has been one of our strongest allies in the fight against Proposition 8 in California. The national NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund (LDF) and the California branch of the NAACP joined other civil rights groups in filing a major brief before the California Supreme Court in support of equality, and LDF recently urged the California legislature to enact resolutions calling for the invalidation of Prop 8.
The NAACP is getting some push-back for these efforts. Now is the time for us to support them and show that coalition politics goes both ways. Please join me in expressing your support for their statement of equality to your local NAACP branch:
- Donate to your local branch or to the national LDF
- Post a note on the NAACP page on Facebook
- Contact someone at the NAACP to express your support
We are not alone in this fight. Let’s show that we know how to step up to the plate when others step up for us.
