The following is a statement from NOW PResident Terry O'Neill:
WASHINGTON - Help NOW Fight for Marriage Equality!
What's wrong with giving lesbian and gay couples in loving, committed relationships the same protections under the law as heterosexual couples?
Nothing. Equal marriage is the right thing to do; and I believe we will see it throughout the country in our lifetimes.
Though opinions are shifting in favor of full equality for LGBT people, including marriage equality, we won't see the changes we need without a fight. Will you give $51 to NOW today to help us see marriage equality in all 50 states (and D.C.)?
The National Organization for Women has long been a trailblazer in the fight for marriage equality. In 1995, we were one of the first organizations to affirm marriage as a fundamental right not to be denied to same-sex couples. We launched our ground-breaking Equal Marriage campaign in 2004 and NOW chapters around the country have never stopped fighting.
Today our activists around the country are carrying their Equal Marriage rounds to fight back against the national tour of the fundamentalist hate group that calls itself "the National Organization for Marriage." Please give $51 to NOW so that we can continue to send Equal Marriage campaign support to our activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
We're going to win this one. I can feel it. Are you willing to fight for it?
