Bar Association Opposes Prop. 8

The San Fernando Valley Bar Association has come out opposed to Proposition 8, which would eliminate the rights of same-sex couples to marry in California. The bar association said it does not involve itself in partisan politics, but always supports pro-civil rights movements and speaks out against what it sees as threats to civil rights. The SFVBA Board of Trustees unanimously voted to adopt a resolution urging all of its members to vote against the constitutional amendment eliminated those rights. “(We urge) all members of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, within their own communities, to actively support the full realization and exercise of civil rights by all citizens without regard for age, ancestry, color, religious creed, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation,” SFVBA said in a statement.
