Protest Prop 8 in Boston & Northampton

The day after last week's election, the ACLU helped file a lawsuit seeking to overturn Prop 8, which took away equal marriage rights in California.

An ongoing nationwide protest against Prop 8 will take place this Saturday. More than 4,000 people have already said they plan to attend the Boston rally:

Nearly 500 have said they plan to attend the Northampton rally:

Please help spread the word, and check our events page for the latest details.

The passage of Prop 8 shows that we cannot take the pioneering, first-in-the-nation breakthrough for marriage equality in Massachusetts for granted -- and that fundamental rights to equality under the law should not be decided by popular vote.
