Watch the “8” performance

A couple of weeks ago, we discussed innovative advocacy tools. In response to the court ruling blocking the release of the video of the proceedings when California’s Prop 8 was challenged in court, the American Foundation for Equal Rights staged a performance of the proceedings, taken directly from the court transcript.
This video is available for view until Saturday, March 10. This latest performance features George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jaime Lee Curtis, Martin Sheen and others. I thought it was amazing on a lot of levels, not the least: a way to creatively turn a limiting court decision into a powerful advocacy tool.
