"Eve of Justice" Vigil at Napa's United Methodist Church March 4

The lovely folks connected to Napa's No on 8 activity before and after the election are keeping up the movement. This time, they've organized a candlelight vigil the night before the CA Supreme Court begins to hear oral arguments about the invalidity of Proposition 8. Their facebook event page has more information:
Candlelight Vigil to Protect the Constitution's Promise of Equality for All

On the evening before the California Supreme Court holds oral arguments on the validity of Proposition 8 and whether the initiative process can be used to take away fundamental freedoms from minorities, join us for a candlelight vigil for justice and equality.

WHEN: Wednesday evening, March 4, 2009. We will gather at 5:30 pm and begin our vigil at 6:00 pm.

You may bring signs and candles. As always, this will be a peaceful event intended to support our allies as the oral arguments to overturn this hateful proposition begin the following day.

I look forward to gathering and showing a united, supportive, candle-lit front in Napa. Will you join us?


  1. I'm there! I will also try and bring a few of my Club members. I'm sure some will be interested in going to this^.^ and of course my Teacher Advisor will be wanting to go to this also. Any supplies my GSA Club can help with?

  2. While I' not concerned any of you would get violent, I'm sure many will have those thoughts and feelings from time to time. Therefore, I offer these words I try to use for myself whenever I start getting angry at those who would deny us equality. I borrowed them from Soulforce.
    "It's imperative that we remain nonviolent in our approach. Although it may provide short term emotional release, it's ultimately counterproductive to scream expletives at those who have harmed us. We must refrain from damaging property or trying to destroy the character of others and instead approach those who promote discrimination in a spirit of nonviolence. As both Gandhi and King taught, we must avoid violence of the fist, tongue, and heart and remember that in truth we are challenging unjust systems, not people. In due course, we seek to be in community with those from whom we currently find ourselves divided."
