Murdered and persecuted by governments...It's time this STOPS!

Murdered and persecuted by governments. Arrested and beaten for being who we are. Our rights put up for popular vote, time and time again.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have been the target of hate and discrimination for centuries and our fight for marriage is part of a long struggle for equality and acceptance.

As we work to overturn Prop 8, we must share our stories and our history. We need those who are not yet on our side, to understand that Prop 8 is part of a history of discrimination that must end.

Today, EQCA launched a statewide ad that delivers that message.

Watch the ad.

By making the connection between past persecution and current discrimination, we will increase the awareness and understanding that are vital to our cause and move closer to our goal of true equality and acceptance.

Take action to ensure that everyone learns our history, connects it to our present struggle and joins the fight.
