We are kicking off our 2013 Equal-A-Thon with big news on marriage equality!
We're thrilled to announce the launch of Get Engaged!, Equality Florida's new statewide campaign to secure the freedom to marry in Florida.
The U.S. Supreme Court is set to rule on two marriage equality cases. While no one knows the outcome, we do know that we will have enormous work ahead. Even if the federal law that bans recognition of gay couples’ marriages is struck down as expected, gay Floridians still won’t be permitted to marry here until we undo the state’s constitutional ban.
This won’t be easy. In fact, it will be the hardest campaign we’ve ever taken on, and the success is entirely up to you. We’ve set an aggressive goal of raising $200,000 in two weeks for this year’s Equal-A-Thon. Will you help?
If you are serious about winning marriage equality in Florida, now is the time to make a commitment. Are you ready to Get Engaged!
Will you chip in to fund our statewide field campaign to talk to voters honestly about the harm government-sanctioned discrimination inflicts?
Will you donate towards persuasion ads that will run on television, radio and online?
Will you help us go back to the ballot if that’s what it takes to end the ban once and for all?
As we kick off Get Engaged!, remember, how much we can do is up to you. Your contribution of $10 or more let’s us know you believe Florida is ready to lead the way in the South.
Give right now at the level you are able, and get a T-shirt or bumper sticker that shows everyone that you stood up for what is right when it mattered most.
