I received this from MoveOn today. They are one of the organizations working to overturn Proposition 8. Steve and I fully endorse what they are doing and hope you'll join us in supporting their work which is so important for all of us!
Dear California MoveOn member,
A lot of us are sad and angry over the passage of California Proposition 8 which reversed marriage equality and wrote discrimination into the California Constitution.
Many people worked hard to defeat this measure including MoveOn members, who contributed over $300,000 to defeat it. But agents of intolerance used fear-mongering to eke out a win.
The Courage Campaign (which does MoveOn-style organizing in California) is working with other groups to overturn Prop 8 in the 2010 election. That'll take a huge grassroots mobilization, starting now and to succeed, they'll need an army of us fighting together to win marriage equality for all.

Thousands of people are signing the pledge every day.
Thanks for all you do.
Wes, Joan, Carrie, Mari, and the rest of the team
