Take Action to Oppose the Federal Marriage

Amendment
Stand with Cho! Tell Bush No!

It is now clear that President Bush and the Republicans will use attacks
against gays and lesbians as their 2004 election year strategy.

This week, President Bush officially declared his support for the Federal
Marriage Amendment — a measure that would write discrimination into the
United States Constitution.

This is our year to fight back and be heard.

If we stand united in 2004, we can protect our civil rights and liberties and
protect the constitution from the hands of the far-right conservatives. That's
why I want you to add your name along with mine to this petition — it's time
to stand up and be heard.

Our goal is huge — 500,000 signers by June — Pride month. I want you to
sign it and I want you to pass it to your friends. This is critical to our civil
rights and liberties.

Bush can't run on his record, so he'll work to divide Americans on wedge
issues like same-sex marriage to ignite his failing campaign. What's worse —
he's willing to do it by darkening our Constitution with an amendment that
forbids our rights instead of protecting them — the only amendment to do so
save Prohibition.

All of our civil rights are at stake, and we must do everything we can to
protect them. Let's start by showing them we are many, united, and will not
be silent any longer. Please sign this petition today and join with the DNC in
making our voices heard and defeating Bush in November.

Sincerely,
Margaret Cho

Dear President Bush and Members of Congress:

I am outraged at the President's willingness to support the Federal Marriage


Amendment. This measure threatens the freedom of all Americans because it denies
the civil rights of a whole group of individuals. All Americans deserve equality under
the law.

President Bush, I urge you to stop catering to far-right conservatives, and to start
showing respect for GLBT families.

Members of Congress, if the President is indeed willing to launch an attack on the


civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans, then the responsibility now falls on you to
defend the rights of the people — all of the people. As my elected representative I
urge you to fulfill your duty to your constituents by opposing the Federal Marriage
Amendment. Any attempt to amend the constitution for the sole purpose of denying
freedoms to a minority of Americans is an attempt to deny equality for all Americans.
