Friends and Family,
I created this page to help defeat the divisive Proposition 8 in California. This proposition seeks to eliminate the right of same sex couples to marry. If it passes, it would mark the first time that a ballot measure was passed to eliminate basic rights for a group of individuals.
At a time of unprecendented challenges facing the world today, some people still want to focus on singling out a group of people to be treated differently than everyone else. But I believe now is the time we must all stand together. We must support anyone who wants to show their love and commitment to the partner of their choice, whoever that may be. The love, honor and compassion represented by these unions cannot hurt anyone, certainly not heterosexual couples, and most assuredly not children. If anything, allowing everyone the right to marriage shows our children that all people are created equally and love is valued above all.
This is one of the most important measures to come up for a vote in many years and I have been supporting it financially as best I can. However, the cause is so important that I hope you will consider joining the effort and donating what you can. The supporters of this proposition are raising hand over fist and scaring up support for their measure with dire warnings about how our society will surely crumble if their measure fails.
No On Prop 8, Equality For All is the coalition that is leading the fight to defeat Prop 8 and defend the fundamental right to marry for all Californians. I've seen some of their commercials and they are very effective. They do a good job appealing to fairness and justice. If you contribute to my fundraising page, you'll be contributing to their campaign and help to keep their positive and informative messages on the air.
I thank you for supporting me in this important cause.
