Courage Campaign

"Decision Day" is on Tuesday!

The California Supreme Court just announced that it will release its decision on the fate of Proposition 8 on Tuesday, May 26. The court will either uphold the Constitution, recognizing equal protection under the law, or uphold discrimination, taking away fundamental civil rights from a minority.

This will be a moment that you -- and your friends -- will remember for the rest of your life. We don't know what the state Supreme Court will do. But we'll send you the news as soon as it is announced.

As Charlize Theron told the Courage Campaign community a few weeks ago, Fresno will be the most important place to be on the Saturday after Decision Day -- no matter what the Supreme Court rules.

At 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, thousands of marriage equality supporters from across California -- LGBT and straight allies alike -- will "Meet in the Middle for Equality" to celebrate or protest the Supreme Court's ruling at Fresno City Hall.

Nearly 100 organizations, including the Courage Campaign, are mobilizing members for this amazing event in the heartland of California. "Equality Express" buses are leaving from several locations across the state. If you don't already have a spot reserved, think about car pooling with your friends to Fresno.

If you have friends who want to hear the Supreme Court decision as well as more information on Meet in the Middle, please forward this message right now and ask your friends to sign up for email alerts today: http://www.couragecampaign.org/DecisionDay

Thank you for doing everything in your power to restore marriage equality to California, regardless of what happens on Decision Day.

Rick Jacobs
Chair, Courage Campaign

P.S. You can also get the Supreme Court's decision texted to your cell phone the moment it is announced. The Courage Campaign is teaming up with CREDO Mobile to send cell phone users the court's decision on Prop 8 as well as news on "Meet in the Middle." To sign up on your phone, just text "DECISION" to 27336.

There is also another important legislation being discussed in congress soon, and that is the Uniting American Families Act. This has been on the table for so long, from its previous incarnation as the Permanent Partners Immigration Act and finally its being taken seriously. This effects 35,000+ American citizens who cannot sponsor their foreign partner to live in the US. Many of the States main allies and partners already have this legislation and the US has been backward for far too long. Your readers might want to find out more about it here:
