Act Now: Join Brad Pitt in Fighting for Marriage Equality
October 31, 2012 by Chad Griffin, President
Brad Pitt is donating $100,000 to HRC as part of our efforts to secure marriage equality in the final days of this election cycle, and he wants you to help out with the fight as well. The stakes have never been higher for our community in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington State – now is not the time to sit idly by on the sidelines. Now is the time to act. Step up and match Brad Pitt’s generosity now!
You can donate and learn more by visiting www.hrc.org/Brad.
Brad’s sending a clear message to fair-minded Americans today about the importance of these four campaigns:
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.
Time is running out for you to make a difference in these critical campaigns. Join Brad Pitt in fighting for marriage equality and take action now.
By Election Day, HRC will have invested $8 million in efforts to expand marriage equality over the past two years, including $5 million in the four ballot measure states this year. HRC has staff on the ground in each of the campaigns and is currently engaged in the organization’s largest ever election year mobilization to put these campaigns – and other endorsed candidates – over the top.
