No on Prop 8: Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry

Produced by Carmen Alvarado, Kai Cobbins, Gabriella Miranda, Rachel Steinwand, Ati Thamok

Straight and married couples between the ages of 40 and 60 are our target voters. Most straight parents don’t want their kids to grow up thinking that it’s okay to be gay. The reason why married or straight couples could vote “yes” on Prop 8 is because it would protect the definition of “marriage.” The way that we plan to sway them to vote “no” on Prop 8 is to show them that everyone deserves full, American rights and equality under all circumstances. We believe that if we can sway the minds of these swing voters, then they can change the minds of their children. Voters between the ages of 40 and 60 were born in a certain generation, in which we believe that they may know more of American history and our struggle for all equal rights, such as Martin Luther King Jr., the women’s rights movement, and Harvey Milk.
