Upcoming Fresno Rally To Repeal Prop 8

Excerpted from the Sacramento Bee:

The next skirmish in the battle over same-sex marriage will be in Fresno, where supporters plan a large rally to kick off a campaign they hope will change minds -- and votes. Their goal: to undo Proposition 8. [...]
Supporters of same-sex marriage plan to rally on the Saturday after the state Supreme Court rules on Prop. 8's legality. The high court has until June 3 to rule. That ruling is widely expected to affirm the will of the voters. But supporters of same-sex marriage -- buoyed by decisions in Iowa, Maine and three other states to allow such marriages -- said they plan to put an initiative on the November 2010 ballot to legalize the practice in California. [...]
The rally is being called "Meet In The Middle For Equality." Actress Charlize Theron is expected to attend, and organizers predict the rally could attract up to 3,000 people from throughout California.
