Subject: Town Meeting: PA Constitutional Amendment
An amendment to the PA constitution has been proposed that would both limit marriage to one man and one woman and deny all unmarried partners a status “substantially equivalent” to marriage. The purpose of this meeting is to present what we currently know to the community, and begin to organize to defeat this amendment.

When: January 18, 2006
Where: GLCC in Squirrel Hill
Time: 7PM

Prior to this meeting, we urge interested people to take any or all of the following actions:
1) sign the petitions against the amendment being circulated by several volunteers or online at
