Equality California, Prop 8, The unimaginable happened last night

I get these in my email, I thought I'd share.

The unimaginable happened last night

Dear supporter,

Yesterday, in the bluest of blue states, Massachusetts voters elected a right-wing, anti-equality candidate to the U.S. Senate seat held by Edward Kennedy since 1962. And the group behind Prop. 8, the National Organization for Marriage, played a major role.

The volatile electorate, coupled with fierce opposition determined to deny us equality, makes 2010 a critical year to preserve and expand our right to legal equality. We all must engage in this critical election year and do everything we can to elect pro-equality candidates. EQCA's political action committee only endorses candidates and works to elect those who are 100% in support of our rights. Make a contribution to Equality California's PAC so that we can protect our gains and continue to expand our rights.

With truly historic state races for Governor, Attorney General and Insurance Commissioner, as well as nearly half the California Senate seats and the entire Assembly up for grabs this year (and key U.S. Senate and Congressional races including Senator Barbara Boxer's seat) what happens in the next election will dictate not only who will fight for our rights for years to come but whether we can protect our gains and achieve true equality.

Please donate now!

You, EQCA members, can make the difference in these elections by working with our 20 field managers in nine offices throughout the state. We can only do this work with your support. Please, donate now!

Too much hangs in the balance to wait to get involved. Consider volunteering with our field team, and make a contribution to our PAC so we can target key races for support.

Let's all get engaged before it is too late.

In solidarity,

Geoff Kors
Executive Director
Equality California
