Contribute Now to Stand with Mike Gronstal

by Joe Mirabella


On November 4th, 2010, against enormous pressure, Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal vowed to stand up for equality by refusing to allow a Constitutional Amendment banning marriage equality in Iowa to come to a vote.

From the Des Moines Register:

Gronstal believes the right thing means protecting the civil rights of gays and lesbians. He reaffirmed Wednesday that he won't bow to pressure, no matter how nasty it gets.

"The easy political thing for me to do years ago would have been to say, 'Oh, let's let this thing go. It's just too political and too messy,' " Gronstal said. "What's ugly is giving up what you believe in, that everybody has the same rights. Giving up on that? That's ugly."

Politicians like Mike Gronstal are rare. He needs to know that we stand by him. Contribute $5, $10, $15, $20, or what ever is meaningful to you, to say, "Thank you!"

NOM is going to go after Mike. Let's stand with him today so he can stand with us for years to come.

Not yet convinced? Take a moment to see him speak right after the Iowa Supreme Court ruling.

Please contribute today. A little money goes a long way in Iowa.
