Los Angeles Mayor to Host Special Community Event After Ninth Circuit’s Proposition 8 Ruling
Mayor Villaraigosa, the American Foundation for
Equal Rights and over ten national, statewide and local groups will
co-host a special community event today at 5:00 p.m. PST in the Los
Angeles City Hall Rotunda. The event will be held in response to
today’s ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth

The Ninth Circuit will determine whether to uphold the historic August
2010 decision of the Federal District Court that found Proposition 8 unconstitutional. Proposition 8 stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry.
