This was the most important election cycle in recent history – maybe ever. We all worked really hard and we did a great job! We got Barack in the White House, we packed Congress with Dems, California passed Prop 2 and defeated Prop 4, my district elected some good representatives and, although the initiatives were wickedly hard to understand I think we made some “green” progress… we worked really hard, but our efforts were diffused over countless important issues.
What’s my friggin’ point you wonder? Well, you probably spent a lot of time, talent and treasure on the election and I’m here to tell you – thanks, but it’s not over. With the election past, you’ve got to have some time freed up and we’re gonna need your help. 🙂
If you’ve been paying attention, hundreds of thousands of people are mobilizing to find a way to undo our failures in CA, FL, AZ and AR – not to mention raise awareness and support in all the states that have not yet begun to politicize LGBT civil rights issues – and we need all the help we can get. LGBT civil rights are moving to the front and center of American politics as we speak. We have the opportunity to shape history now. Will you help?
Tuesday night was a bitter-sweet celebration. We came together to witness the first black man who will become our president, yet watched in sadness as Florida, Arizona, Arkansas, and California all voted down equal rights for all citizens.
This is not a 4 state issue. This is an issue of equality across America. Stand up and make your voice heard. Visit the main www.jointheimpact.com to learn more.
