I'm ENGAGED to win the freedom to marry

No one wants to be told it’s illegal to marry the person they love.  And with your help, fewer and fewer people will have to know what that’s like.

We’ve reached a tipping point. As more people talk to gay and lesbian friends and family about why marriage matters, they’re coming to realize that marriage equality is not a political issue. It’s about love, commitment and family.

Oregon is next. We are more confident than ever that Oregon will lead the way and be the first state to vote out a constitutional amendment limiting the freedom to marry.

Make no mistake, this will not be an easy path.  In Washington, it took over 12 million dollars and more than 30,000 volunteer hours to maintain a four-point margin of support (greater public support for marriage than we have in Oregon now). But with your help, we WILL get to the day when all Oregonians can marry the person they love.

If we want to launch a 2014 ballot campaign to win the freedom to marry in Oregon, we need you to get ENGAGED today! Sign the petition and commit to joining the effort to make history in Oregon.
