Hi CQA Fans!
Quick note: we have a really special guest at our upcoming meeting! Fred Karger, an activist who made it known that the Church of Jesus Christ and Later Day Saints (LDS – a.k.a. Mormons) played a huge part in the Prop 8 funding, will be coming to speak to the Queer Alliance at our weekly meeting. Karger is also currently involved in a presidential exploratory committee; he is considering an independent run for the Presidency of the United States, and would be the first openly gay man to do this. It should be a really interesting meeting, so I hope you can all make it.
Where: Stephen Donaldson Lounge in the basement of Furnald Hall
When: 2pm on Sunday, September 19

As you have probably heard, yesterday a federal judge in Massachusetts ruled part of DOMA to be unconstitutional (the part defining marriage as between a man and a woman!). Because the federal government was the defendant in this case, President Obama can direct the Department of Justice to stand down and refuse to appeal this historic victory.
Please sign the petition (link below) started by the Courage Campaign this morning urging President Obama to let the ruling stand. Also, forward this link to your friends!
