Today's letter - First state to eliminate racial restrictions should not be the last to eliminate gender restrictions

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -

In 1948 California was the first state to remove its ban on interracial marriage. At the time, only one out of ten Americans supported the action.

Alabama was the last state with a ban on the books. They finally removed it in the year 2000, fifty-two years after us. The popular vote was only 60/40 in favor of removing it.

California has missed its opportunity to be the first state with permanent marriage equality, let's not make it the last. Please sign AB 43 and bring us marriage equality now.

Yours truly,
