Porterville Tonight!

Porterville is the only city in California who’s City Council has passed a resolution praising Proposition 8, the ban on gay marriage. Are you going to let a few city council members speak for you and all of Porterville? I dare you to do something about it. This is your chance to avoid sitting idly by while the powers that be put words in YOUR mouth and support laws that are divisive, un-equal, unjust and un-constitutional.

There will be a Town Hall Meeting at Los Robles Elementary School in Porterville on Wednesday, July 1st at 7pm.

We urge you, nay, implore you, to come down and say a few words to our city council members about how you feel about Proposition 8, their support of it, and anything else on your mind for that matter. You may think that your voice doesn’t count. Don’t fall for such an illusion. Emphatically, it does matter. Only YOU can speak for yourself. Don’t let the bureaucratic fat-cats take that away from you. You don’t even need to be from Porterville. If you have any association with it, friends, family, occasional visits, have shopped here or supported any cause or group here, you can come and talk. It doesn’t have to be long, you don’t have to sound professional. You can talk for 10 seconds or 2 hours, it doesn’t matter. The fact is, they need to hear from YOU. Please come down and show your support. Tell everyone you know and ask them to tell everyone they know. The more people there, the stronger the message. Utilize all your contacts and get the word out!
