Repeal Prop 8: It’s not a threat, it’s a promise.

Repeal Prop 8: It’s not a threat, it’s a promise.
"Because we fully expect to prevail in court, we expect that, at some
point, we will need to defeat a ballot proposal by advocates of same-
sex marriage. Our opponents have threatened such a proposal as early
as 2010. We are already beginning the planning process to lay the
groundwork to defeat a future proposed initiative that would legalize
gay marriage." — Ron Prentice, Chairman, "Yes on Proposition 8"
campaign
Dear james m,
It’s not a threat, Mr. Prentice. It’s a promise.
That’s why 295,230 people have signed the pledge to repeal Prop 8,
launched by the Courage Campaign and joined by CREDO Mobile and
MoveOn. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands are marching and organizing
in cities across America to restore marriage equality to California.
Because of this unprecedented Marriage Equality Movement, Ron
Prentice — and his religious right-wing "prayer warriors" — are now
on defense in a two-front electoral and judicial war that will
eventually determine the fate of Prop 8.
Right now, gay and lesbian advocacy organizations like NCLR, Lambda
Legal, and the ACLU are waging a critical legal battle to invalidate
Prop 8 in court.
On a parallel path, the Courage Campaign is launching a people-
powered campaign to support the nearly 300,000 citizens calling for
the repeal of Prop 8 by 2010.
Will you put your financial power behind the repeal of Prop 8 today?
Inspired by Barack Obama’s grassroots campaign for change, this new
marriage equality campaign will be driven by you, neighbor-to-
neighbor, across California.
To help the Courage Campaign put community organizers on the ground
immediately, please contribute $25, $50, $500, $1000 or whatever you
can afford right now:
President-elect Obama’s campaign empowered millions of Americans to
engage their friends, family and neighbors in meaningful discussions
about the future of our country, in every state in America.
And, with your support, that’s exactly what we want to do for
marriage equality in every county in California.
We will work with the LGBT community and our other partners — such
as MoveOn, CREDO, SEIU-United Healthcare Workers, and the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference — to conduct an innovative community-
based campaign to change the conversation about marriage equality in
California.
This new campaign to restore marriage equality is already being
driven by you. Now we need to take it neighbor-to-neighbor, door-to-
door, across California. Today, you have the power to get this unique
campaign off the ground by contributing whatever you can afford,
whether it’s $25, $250, or $2,500 or more to repeal Prop 8:
When this battle is engaged again, we know Ron Prentice and his right-
wing crusaders will spend millions of dollars to scare Californians
with deceptive and emotionally-charged TV ads.
But this time, the defenders of marriage equality — straight and gay
alike — will be organizing in their communities to persuade their
friends and family that separate is NOT equal, and it’s definitely
not American.
And, this time, we will win.
Thank you for everything you are doing to change California and the
country.
Rick Jacobs
Chair
P.S. Next week, we will highlight the stories of newly energized
activists, straight and gay, who are moving from the streets to
strategy — and how we will support them in organizing their
communities.
For now, please spread the word about this unique campaign by asking
five of your friends to invest any amount they can afford — even $5 –
– in our campaign to repeal Prop 8:
The Courage Campaign Issues Committee is part of the Courage
Campaign’s online organizing network that empowers over 300,000
grassroots and netroots activists to push for progressive change in
California.
To support our campaign to repeal Prop 8, please contribute to the
Courage Campaign Issues Committee today:
