By Josh Richman
Monday, September 17th, 2007 at 2:18 pm in Arnold Schwarzenegger, Assembly, California State Senate, Mark Leno, same-sex marriage.

Activists and advocates across the state organized by Marriage Equality USA, Equality California and other groups are planning rallies for tomorrow to urge Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign Assemblyman Mark Leno‘s AB 43 and legalize same-sex civil marriage in California. The Assembly passed it June 5 on a 42-34 vote and the state Senate passed it Sept. 7 on a 22-15 vote, but the governor has vowed to veto it again, just as he did in 2005.

In the greater Bay Area, rallies are set for:

  • Oakland — 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Frank Ogawa Plaza, at 14th Street and Broadway
  • San Francisco — 5:30 p.m. at the LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market St., for a news conference with Leno followed by a march to Harvey Milk Plaza at Castro and Market streets
  • San Jose — 6 p.m. at the Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center, 938 The Alameda
  • Stockton — 5:30 p.m. at the San Joaquin Pride Center, 4410 N. Pershing Ave., Suite C-22
