Sign this petition to repeal Prop 8 NOW. Show your support in allowing people to choose to marry the person they love. Right now, our brothers, our sisters, our co-workers, and our friends are being discriminated against just because they love someone of the same gender. Love isn’t something that should be regulated by the government. It’s more powerful than that and it’s something that everyone should be able to experience. Love makes us stronger as a community, and it’s worth fighting for.

You can help reverse marriage discrimination by signing this petition. There are organizations out there that say they support marriage equality, but they're hesitant to take a stand and fight for it now. We're going to collect all the signed petitions and deliver them to these organizations, and ask that they step up to support marriage equality now.

When Olson and Boise decided to take marriage equality to the federal courts, some big LGBT organizations argued against it, saying that it was “too soon” to fight for marriage equality on the Federal level. These same organizations are also saying that it’s “too soon” to fight for marriage equality at the State level in California.

It's not right for these organizations to tell Obama that there are no excuses in delaying the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and that there are no excuses in delaying the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, while at the same time they argue that LGBT residents in California should wait more than 2 years to be equal. Demanding equality in the army while putting off equality in marriage is a compromise. Full equality is not something to be earned over time or given through concessions.

Let's stand together and tell these organizations that there is no such thing as partial equality! The time is now and we are the ones we've been waiting for. No one should be told to wait in line for their turn to be equal.

Tell these organizations to stop delaying LGBT equality, and unite in the fight to restore marriage equality now. Tell them to support Restore Equality 2010's efforts in repealing Proposition 8!
