A child being born today will never know an America without marriage equality. I'm still letting that sink in.
Last week's Supreme Court decision affirms what our faith traditions have taught for a long time – love wins.
To celebrate, we collected 5 joy-filled faith quotes from different traditions – Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh. I think you'll really like them.
We know too that there is much work to be done to achieve full justice and LGBT rights – from ending discrimination in housing and employment, to stopping deportations and incarceration, to addressing the intersections with racism.
It's why at Groundswell we provide a free tool where you can start and run a petition online – to power your continuing work for justice in your community, city, state, and nation-wide.
If you already have an idea for a campaign and just need a toolset to get up and running – great! Visit action.groundswell-mvmt.org and click "Start a Campaign" to get started.
If you're organizing on an issue but have some questions on what's involved in starting an online petition – that's great, too! Just reply to this email (or write us at [email protected]) with some background info, and one of our campaign coaches will be in touch.
As the great Betty White said,
You are movement leaders. We are here to help. It'd be an honor to support your work.
PS: Here are other campaigns that have been started on Groundswell for inspiration http://action.groundswell-mvmt.org/categories/
