From EQCA's Blog: The California Ripple Effect
Andrea Shorter, EQCA Deputy Marriage & Coalitions Director | Tue, 12/08/2009 - 9:52am
Happy Holidays! Join us in wishing the First Family holiday greetings while introducing them to images of thousands of LGBT families. Today Equality California joins fellow national and local lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) family groups throughout the country in launching the From Our Family to Yours Campaign. In addition to spreading holiday cheer, the campaign will increase visibility and awareness about the need for federal protections for the LGBT community.
In this season of peace and generosity, let’s introduce the First Family to ours. In order to succeed in winning federal protections for our families, we must put real names and faces to the people in our community.
This campaign is simple. Just mail a copy of your family holiday card, or if you don’t have one, then send a family photo to the First Family with this message:
Season’s Greetings, from our family to yours.
May the next year bring peace and equality for all.
We encourage you to send your holiday cards as soon as possible. Please send your holiday cards and photos to:
Family Equality Council
PO Box 206
Boston, MA 02133
Or send a digital photo to Tina Walker-Morin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will compile all of the images into a holiday package to be delivered to the First Family......
