Our equal rights are at risk and we need your help.
Less than one year ago, the struggle for equal rights gained a major victory. Loving couples, whether same-gender or opposite-gender--can marry in the state of California. But this right is not secure. If Proposition 8 passes, we will lose the equal right to marry in California, and the cause of equal rights for gay Americans could be set back decades.
Right-wing religious groups, led by the Mormon Church, have organized over $20 million in donations to insert discrimination into the California Constitution. They believe, as I do, that if same sex marriages continue in California, they will eventually become legal across the country.
I know there are many worthwhile causes and that we all have limited resources, so I am making a personal plea. This issue is critically important to our family. If Proposition 8 succeeds it will have a major, negative impact on our life. Please help protect our rights and the rights of all other gay Americans.
