It is the moment we’ve been waiting for. Loving, committed lesbian and gay couples can legally marry in California.

Today, the California Supreme Court in a 4-3 decision struck down the state’s discriminatory marriage laws banning marriage for same-sex couples. This historic decision is a huge victory for all Californians who cherish fairness and opportunity.

But the right wing is already poised to take it away.

They have submitted what appear to be enough signatures to place a constitutional initiative on the November ballot that, if passed, would nullify today’s landmark victory.

We need your help to preserve the right for ALL loving couples to marry in California. Equality for All is a coalition of organizations working to defeat this initiative. Please contribute to their campaign fund today.

Two people in a committed, trusting and loving relationship deserve the dignity and support that comes with marriage. The Court did its job today — to ensure that all Californians are treated fairly and equally under the law.

What is fair simply does not matter to the right wing extremists who want to deny equality to same-sex couples and all LGBT Californians. They have already poured $2 million dollars into placing the constitutional initiative on the ballot. They are talking about spending $10 million more to pass it in November.

Equality For All needs your help to raise the millions needed to fight back and speak directly to the voters. Same-sex couples just won the right to marry. Don’t let the right wing take it away. Contribute now to Equality For All!

Equality For All has been at the forefront of the fight for fairness and equality. The coalition has talked to hundreds of thousands Californians about this initiative and the harm it could cause for millions of California families. Equality For All has mobilized thousands volunteers and gathered over 76,000 signatures opposing the initiative. This is just the beginning.

It’s critical we continue to build the campaign to fight this initiative. After you’ve made a contribution, please forward this message to 5 of your friends today.

Today is a joyous one for all of us. Now the fight goes on to preserve the opportunity for everyone to realize their hopes and dreams by being able to marry the person they love. We can’t let the extremists take that away.
