Friends, we are in the final days and hours of this fierce battle to preserve our precious freedom to marry.
Here in Salinas, at a parade organized by Prop 8 supporters, we endured heckling and verbal abuse by close to 800 people, who labeled us as sick and compared us to pedophiles.
They said they were marching in support of family values, but we believe that equality and respect for all are part of family values. Just like the freedom of speech or freedom of religion, the freedom to marry is fundamental to our society. Voting NO on 8 ensures that our families are treated with the same dignity and respect as everyone else. Our opponents heckling and taunting will never change this.
This insanity needs to stop. Prop 8 needs to be defeated. It’s wrong. It’s unfair.
Let's send a strong response to the supporters of this unjust proposition. We need at least 1 dollar for everyone who marched in that parade. Get us there. We're asking you to donate what you can by 3 p.m. tomorrow.
For every contribution you make, we'll reserve a one-of-a-kind No On 8 pin by our very own local movement artist, Rosa Santa Cruz, just for you! You can pick it up at our No on 8 rally this Sunday, at Jamba Juice in Harden Ranch Shopping Center, 12:30 p.m.
We cannot allow them to discourage us and scare us out of fighting for justice.
Please, donate now and forward this to your friends and family so that they can donate, too.
I know we can win. We have to.
No on 8!
