Ready For Marriage

June 3, 2013 By John O'Connor

According to our new poll, Californians are ready for the freedom to marry. And whether the Supreme Court allows marriage for same-sex couples or denies it, we must be prepared.

In June, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on two cases related to the freedom to marry: Proposition 8 and the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). This is a historic moment for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and by coming together and preparing now, we can show the breadth of our movement and the power of our love.

Our new polling shows that 55 percent of likely voters in California favor the freedom to marry.

Regardless of the Supreme Court’s decision, we believe marriage for same-sex couples will return to California—and we will do what we need to do to ensure that happens. Which is why we need you to be ready too.

There are two ways you can get involved:

Join us at a local celebration or protest throughout California. Equality California is proud to join our coalition partners in promoting celebrations or protests in response to the Supreme Court’s decision throughout the state.

Or chip in $173 – a dollar for every day we had the freedom to marry in California – so Equality California can continue its public education campaign to win the hearts and minds of Californians and build continued support for the freedom to marry.

Momentum is on our side but we can’t take it for granted. Our poll indicates that likely voters in California of all creeds and backgrounds, strongly support the freedom to marry – and we need you to make that happen.

The nation is ready. California is ready. Can we count on you?
