Activists To Rally For Right To Picket Outside Homes

Dozens of Sacramento activist groups are planning to rally Tuesday against a proposed city ordinance they say will limit their free speech.

The proposed ordinance would prohibit residential picketing. Examples include protests outside the homes of politicians or doctors who perform abortions.

Supporters say these residents are usually stuck in their homes and forced to deal with the unwelcome protesters. But activists say targeted picketing allows disadvantaged communities to call attention to their causes.

The city council is expected to vote on the ordinance next week.
