Latino Leaders Say No to Prop. 8

El Mensajero
, Posted: Oct 26, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO A group of Latino leaders is calling on their constituents to vote against Proposition 8, a measure on the California ballot that would change the state Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. Pastor Hugo Tejada of the Highlands Church in San Bruno, Calif., who supports the measure, said he doesnt believe that the measure is discriminatory.

We are part of the community she said. We are your aunts and uncles and we are here to defend our rights and those of our families.
