Do You MySpace?

And do you oppose the ban?

Here's a group for you. Wisconsinites have been talking about the ban on MySpace and plugging our Action Network trainings.

I've also been seeing groups against the ban emerge on Facebook, an online community for college campuses.

I don't suppose you remember the names of any of the facebook groups? I'd certainly be interested in joining them!

I believe you can only access Facebook if you're a registered student at certain schools. Someone showed me the groups recently, but I can't recall. It might be Students for Equality and another one about the ban. Can anyone else weigh in?

OK, I did a search and found the following groups:

Equality for All- NO on WI marriage amendment

Vote NO on the amendment to ban civil unions and marraige for gay couples!

I'm voting NO on the amendment...

A group search for "amendment" will yield those groups. There are plenty of other groups too about LGBT issues in general. And yes, you have to have a school email to join Facebook or even to view the groups.

Dear Josh,

At UW-Madison there are two facebook groups.

One is called Students for Equality and is the organizing engine for our active campus student group fighting hard against the ban.

The other is called I'm voting NO on the amendment... and is a visibility campaign and forum for students to sign on like a petition and write their reasons for opposing the ban.

Unfortunately, with facebook, you have to attend the school with which the groups are associated. If you attend another school, I would encourage you to create similar groups at your school!

Keep fighting, all!

Take care,

Matt

Do you think you could make a banner that links to the Fair Wisconsin site and post the HTML so I (and others) can display it on my personal (Livejournal) 'blog?
