SABA-SC Endorses No on Proposition 8


In 2002, voters passed a ballot initiative which amended the California Family Code to formally define marriage in California between a man and woman. On May 15, 2008, the California Supreme Court held that the Family Code provisions limiting marriage to a union between a man and woman were unconstitutional, and thus, a person in California is free to marry another person of the same gender. In re Marriage (2008) 43 Cal. 4th 757. SABA-SC, along with 63 Asian American groups, endorsed an Asian American amicus brief in support of marriage equality.

Proposition 8 is an upcoming ballot initiative which would (1) amend the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California; and (2) formally define marriage in California to be valid only between a man and a woman. In other words, Proposition 8 attempts to overturn the California Supreme Court’s holding in In re Marriage.

SABA-SC, along with SABA-Northern California, APABA, KABA and JABA, including in excess of 30 organizations, have voted to endorse No on Proposition 8.
