No Nonsense update - Going local

Some updates on No Nonsense In November, the effort to beat back the Double Secret Illegal Anti-Gay Marriage amendment. First, they've having a kickoff fundraiser in Austin on Thursday. Karl-T has the details.

Second, I can stop typing the long name Double Secret Illegal Anti-Gay Marriage amendment if I want because it's now simply known by the innocuous moniker Proposition 2. I'm not sure what Prop 1 is, but the list goes on beyond those two:

Among the eight other propositions on this fall's ballot is one that would allow the Legislature to define interest rates for commercial loans and another that would authorize the denial of bail for a suspect who violates a condition of his or her release pending trial.

Remember, the one we really care about is Proposition 2.

Finally, here's No Nonsense Newsletter #3, where the big news is that they now have coordinators in the 25 largest counties in Texas. They've also hired two regional coordinators for the San Antonio area, and there will be house parties on September 30. Check it out for all you need to know.

What is wrong with my legislators? The State Government has exactly nada to do with commercial loans. I need to read that proposition more closely; maybe it is the author of the quotation misstating the nature of the prop.

The Houston Equal Rights Alliance (currently the Houston arm of the No Nonsense in November grassroots campaign) is having a blockwalk this Saturday morning to recruit volunteers and talk to people about why they should vote against Constitutional Amendment 2.

We're meeting at 10 am this Saturday, August 27th, at the GLBT Community Center at 3400 Montrose in Suite 207. We're in the building across from Kroger and in the same building as the SkyBar.

If you support equality for everybody in Texas, call 713-522-4372 to sign up for the block walk this Saturday, or e-mail me at

Thanks for plugging us Kuff.
