WHEREAS, California's Attorney General Kamala Harris, Speaker of the Assembly John A. Pérez, and many other prominent Democratic elected officials have made their opposition to the discriminatory law quite clear; and

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED the California Democratic Party is united and speaks with one voice as it calls on the US Supreme Court to recognize the validity of the plaintiffs arguments seeking to overturn Proposition 8 in order to guarantee full equality under the law for same-sex couples; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution by the California Democratic Party be widely publicized by the Party and its officers.
