The legal challenge to Proposition 8 is supported by hundreds of religious organizations, civil rights groups, and labor unions, along with numerous California municipal governments, bar associations, and leading legal scholars, who have collectively urged the California Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8.

“As an African-American pastor with the United Church of Christ in San Marino, I am particularly troubled by Prop. 8’s impact on people who are hurt by its passage. I am reminded of the struggles black communities have faced and continue to face in this country. I am reminded of the damage a majority can and has sometimes inflicted against groups in the past. And I am reminded of the need we all have for equal protection under the law.”
