Block Out Wisconsin "We are on the cusp of a historic and seismic civil rights change in this country. But time, in and of itself, will not bring about change. Time requires action - on the part of gays and lesbians and especially on the part of their family, friends, and other supporters - for us to attain victory and claim full equality. Help turn the tide and defeat the proposed Wisconsin constitutional amendment that would ban marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships for same-sex couples in Wisconsin and help equality progress forward!
