Texans--Monday, April 4:

...is the public hearing of HJR 6, the anti-gay marriage amendment. I'm taking that day off to volunteer, sit in on the entire darn hearing, et cetera. If anybody has that day off or wants to get involved, even show up and sign things, please e-mail me jvw @ io.com . There's at least a 50% chance we can kill the amendment before it ever gets to a public vote--if the people that are interested in killing it, that have the most to lose, or are vaguely interested in a sane Texas constitution--show up.

The conservatives think they've already won...so they're not fighting :)

Thankyouverymuch :)

Like Butterfly says, "gay people deserve to be tied into a life of drudgery and monotony, the same as straights!"

Sure thing! I think they recommend a "casual but respectful" sort of clothes thing, I'll let you know when I'm between moments and can swing by.

No clue--I think somewhere in the 1:00 range, but I'm not perfectly sure at this juncture. I'll be doing voulunteer stuff until I need to break off and play carpool, so that's my personal schedule (however you want to impact it :)

Rigth now, though, I don't know--it could be over at 3:00 or stretch on until 10:00. I also don't know the location, though the public hearing I attended years ago for the reintroduction of the mexican wolf to texas was within hiking distance of campus.
