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

2) call your state legislator and urge them to *not* cosponsor the amendment. You can find the name and contact information for your legislator at http://www.legis.state.pa.us/

3) set up a visit with your legislator in his/her home office. Information on setting up a visit with your legislator can be found at http://www.center4civilrights.org/news/docs/set_up_meeting.doc
