EQCA Offers MATCHING DONATION Challenge To Help Maine

The following press release just hit the “tips” mailbox. Wow-thanks, folks, for an incredible offer and strong show of support!

August 14, 2009

Protect marriage in Maine!

The same groups that bankrolled California’s Yes on 8 campaign have outraised us 2 to 1 in Maine. Your donation to No on 1 will be doubled by Equality California, up to $25,000.

A victory in Maine is essential for victory in California. We are all connected so we need to continue the national momentum toward marriage equality.

Dear EQCA Member,

The same people who ran the right-wing effort to take away our rights here in California have a new target: Maine, which will be voting in less than 80 days on whether or not to protect marriage equality.

Frank Schubert, who ran the Yes on Prop 8 campaign, the National Organization for Marriage, producers of the “Gathering Storm” video, and Focus on the Family, have banded together to overturn the right of same-sex couples to marry in Maine.

This group of extremists have raised more than $340,000, more than twice the amount raised by NO on 1 / Protect Maine Equality.

We must fight back. Make a donation now to protect Maine’s Freedom to Marry now and Equality California will match your donation dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.

A victory in Maine is essential for victory in California. We are all connected so we need to continue the national momentum toward marriage equality.

Everyone deserves the right to marry the person they love. Please, make a donation now so same-sex couples in Maine can retain their right to marry.

In solidarity,

Geoff Kors

Executive Director

Equality California
