|A note from Chad Griffin, HRC President: As I wrote to you yesterday, we must continue to support those affected by Hurricane Sandy and give to organizations like the Red Cross. We must also remember that Tuesday’s elections are almost here and the marriage ballot campaigns in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington must continue. Please see the urgent note below from Brad Pitt and join with him and HRC as we go into the final stretch.|
It’s unbelievable to me that people’s lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days.
In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else.
But that’s the system we have and I’m not going to back down from the fight for loving and committed couples to have the ability to marry. Especially when groups like the Human Rights Campaign are fighting these battles day-in and day-out.
This is our last chance to make a difference. If you’re like me, you don’t want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?
Every person’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is enshrined in our country’s Declaration of Independence, but powerful, well-funded groups are flooding the airwaves with lies trying to take away those rights from certain people… and we can’t stand for it.
Let’s make history together.
