Con Con Committee
The League Con Con Committee has mailed out letter; to various organizations and the neighborhood boards asking to speak at one of their membership or board meetings on our positions on the Con Con call an( the proposed constitutional amendment in regard to same sex marriage.
On the latter issue, we stress that we do not have a position on same-sex marriage as such, but base our opposition or at least two very serious problems with the proposed amendment.
The rights reserved for citizens in our constitution distinguish our democracy from totalitarian states or even from so-called democratic nations which, while allowing citizens to elect their government leaders, give the citizens no constitutional civil rights.
We have produced a digest of our position paper on Con Con to be distributed at these speaking engagements and elsewhere. Other plans have not been finalized as yet.
Leaguers are encouraged to write letters to the editor and to talk to their friends and neighbors on these issues. If you have any questions or comments, please call the office at 531-7448 or 949-7457 in the evenings.
