It’s working

Grassroots campaigns work, and you just proved it.

A few minutes ago, I spoke to Rep. Jim Langevin who called to tell us that he will proudly add his name to the growing list of co-sponsors to The Respect for Marriage Act, legislation that will finally repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act.

Last month, we asked you to contact the members of our Congressional delegation about this important civil rights legislation, and the response was really amazing. Marriage Equality supporters all across Rhode Island logged thousands of calls and emails into the offices of Rep. Langevin and Sen. Jack Reed asking them to do the rights thing and support the Respect for Marriage Act.

You took action, and Jim Langevin listened. Now, let’s say ‘thank you.‘

This is a significant boost in momentum for the pro-equality movement, and you should be proud of the fact that you helped make it happen.

It’s working. All the phone calls, the emails and the door knocking is making a difference. If you keep this up, we’re going to have a major impact on the 2012 elections.  Excited yet?

In Solidarity,

Ray Sullivan
Campaign Director
