PSA: Support Harvey Milk Day

Email from Equality California--Note: since out-of-state interests are drumming up opposition to this bill, I think it is probably fine if you call from out of state to encourage California to start leading the nation in equality and dignity. I don't know if the Governor's phone system will take out-of-state calls, but try!

Harvey Milk Day Under Attack!

1. Call the Governor

2. Join a Phone bank

3. Tweet @Schwarzenegger with your support

On Tuesday, extremists started a coordinated attack on the Harvey Milk Day Bill.

Catholic Exchange, the premier Catholic website, placed an **URGENT** message on their homepage urging their readers to call Governor Schwarzenegger and stop the bill.

The Christian News Wire also carried a story calling Harvey a notorious sexual predator, a public liar, a terrible model for kids and demanded the Governor veto the bill.

Now is the time to take action and show your support for Harvey’s legacy and for our community.

The Governor’s office has dedicated a special, automated phone line for you to express your support.

Phone the Governor right now at 916.445.2841, and call one of his district offices.

Capitol Office: 916.445.2841
Fresno Office: 559.477.1804
Los Angeles Office: 213.897.0322
Riverside Office: 951.680.6860
San Diego Office: 619.525.4641
San Francisco Office: 415.703.2218

You can also join a phone bank next week. Times are:

Fresno: Wednesday and Thursday, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Los Angeles: Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Palm Springs: Thursday, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Palo Alto: Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

San Diego: Tuesday and Wednesday, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
San Francisco: Tuesday and Wednesday, 6:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.
San Mateo: Monday, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Santa Ana: Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

You can also sign a petition at the Equality CA website.

Extremist homophobic groups like Concerned Women for America, Capitol Resource Institute, and the Campaign for Children and Families are stopping at nothing to mobilize their members to call, email, fax and tweet their opposition to Senator Mark Leno’s bill.

Call the Governor now. We can’t let them outnumber our voices!

In solidarity,
