help preserve california's marriage victory

We told you earlier about the exciting news out of California: gay marriage will be legal in that state. The Supreme Court ruled that a marriage ban for same-sex partners was unconstitutional. But the fight isn't over just yet.

From the Human Rights Campaign:
Right now, our opponents are raising millions of dollars to overturn this ruling through a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. For months, HRC and Equality California, as part of the Equality for All coalition, have been working to educate voters on the harmful effects of this amendment and counteract the efforts by anti-gay conservative groups to place this amendment on the November ballot.
We won't know for sure until June whether an anti-gay initiative will appear on the ballot in California, but that hasn't stopped HRC from taking pre-emptive action. HRC sent staffers to Orange County to educate voters and contributed $100,000 to the Decline to Sign effort.

HRC has set up a special fund to fight this ballot initiative - the HRC California Marriage PAC. By donating to this fund, 100% of your contribution will go straight to California to help the fight. Give what you can today to help preserve California's victory for marriage equality!
