No Nonsense blockwalking in Houston on Saturday

From the comments on this post.

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

Please help them out if you can. For those of you in Austin, here's an update on what's going on there.

I think I missed it. Do you have a link somewhere to the text of the various propositions, including #2? I'd like to read the actual wording before trying to follow the good links you have debating the merits.

The exact text of Prop 2 is:

"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

You can find all of the proposed amendments plus analysis of them here. Unfortunately, it's all in documents done in MS Word and Word Perfect.

BK: No Nonsense in November has an excellent website up about the amendment.

Thanks for the link! (Yes, a shame about the Windows formats. Good thing my Linux word processors all read M$ formats.)
