"California teachers union donates $1 million for marriage equality."

This week, the California Teachers Association donated $1 million to defeat Proposition 8, a ballot measure to ban same-sex marriage. The donation “comes on the heels of an internal poll by opponents of Proposition 8 showing that the campaign to defeat the measure was in trouble.” “For us, it’s a civil rights issue,” said CTA President David Sanchez. “We don’t believe people should be treated differently.” More on the No On 8 initiative here.
