It’s not over yet.
This week has been an emotional roller coaster ride. First, thanks to one brave representative, Civil Unions made it out of the House Judiciary Committee. Then, House leadership filibustered the bill, effectively killing it.
Last night, Citizens Project attended a meeting with partners from One Colorado, The Pride Center, Inside/Out and others to develop a strategy for our next steps. One man who attended said, “I came tonight because I couldn’t just sit by anymore. I knew I had to do something.”
Together, we are making history, and if you can’t just sit by anymore either, we invite you to make your voice for equality heard:
- Sign a petition asking House Speaker McNulty and others to give Civil Unions a fair hearing.
- Attend a rally on Monday at the state capitol and show your support for Civil Unions! If you’d like to carpool to the rally from Colorado Springs, meet at Inside/Out Youth Services at 7:30am on Monday, May 14 or contact Jessie.
- Many of the representatives who vowed to block Civil Unions represent El Paso County. Show your solidarity with ALL families by attending a rally Saturday – tomorrow!
