A couple of Fresno High schoolers organized what turned out to be a giant rally at River Park Saturday.About 75 people showed up to fight against the proposition that would ban same-sex marriage.

The young organizers say prop 8 would have government getting involved in people's personal lives. And they say it's an issue younger people should have a say in.

Leah Debber, opposes prop 8, says "No on prop 8 is extremely important. It's affecting our future. We need to teach tolerance and understanding and it's an important part of what we're going to be."

Sunday, several valley churches will show a simulcast in support of Prop 8. The ministers at those churches say marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman.
