Public viewing of California Supreme Court hearing

This morning, all are invited to City Council Chambers to watch a live public viewing of the California Supreme Court hearing regarding Proposition 8, which was passed by California voters in November 2008 and eliminated the right of same sex couples to marry. The hearing is being televised on the California Channel, and is scheduled to occur from 9 a.m. to noon today.

All of us – gay and straight – who care about fairness, justice, tolerance, and equality are watching this case closely with the greatest hope for our state and our nation that those who serve to protect our rights and freedoms will see fit to do so for all of us.
