Voice Your Support of Equal Rights for ALL people!
I just wanted to encourage all of you who support what the Multnomah Commissioners have chosen to do - with the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses - to voice your support. CALL YOUR COMMISSIONER'S OFFICE to let them know that YOU support what they are doing. I just made a phone call to Lisa Naito's office to tell them how proud I was that both the city of my birth (San Francisco) and the town I've chosen as my home (Portland) are standing up for what they beleive is right. The woman I spoke with told me that I had made her day - and asked that I tell everyone who supports this move to call in. So please call and let your opinion be heard. This is history in the making - whether or not the licenses are determined to be legal - it is important that we show those that have taken a stand that they are right, that they are supported, and that we too beleive in equal rights for ALL people and look forward to the day when we can look back and ask ourselves, "what was all the fuss about?"
