The Great Debate

Anne S. Wynne, Founder of the Atticus Circle www.atticuscircle.org , and steering committee member of the Austin Alliance for Social Justice, has agreed to represent No Nonsense in November and debate Warren Chisum.
For those of you unfamiliar with the State Representative from Pampa, Chisum sponsored HJR 6, setting the stage for Constitutional Amendment #2 banning civil marriages and civil unions for same-sex couples to be put on the November 8 ballot, thus giving us all the reason to rally against it.
Anne is a fabulous spokesperson for our cause. Anne is the Founder of The Atticus Circle, a group focused on education, policy development and legal advocacy to achieve equality for all parents and partners, regardless of sexual orientation. Atticus Circle is one of the more than 125 organizations and businesses and thousands of individuals that are working together to mobilize fair-minded Texans to vote against Proposition 2 on November 8.
Anne is an Austin lawyer and married mother of three, who testified against HJR 6 this spring.
We need supporters to attend the debate. It’s at an odd time of day – 1 o’clock on a Thursday afternoon - but your presence will be important. The debate is sponsored by Austin Community College’s Student Life program in an effort to engage students in “Gender and Sexuality” issues.
Hope to see you there and again, many thanks to Anne for delivering our message so powerfully and all those supporting this event.
