Courage Campaign Super PAC launches MittGetsWorse.org

Courage Campaign Super PAC launched MittGetsWorse.org, a partnership with American Bridge 21st Century. MittGetsWorse.org will tell the story of Mitt's record of lies and flip-flopping on LGBT equality dating back to 1994 through oral history, a Facebook timeline and other tools.

Announcing the Breakthrough Conversations Project

Courage Campaign is proud to partner with 14 other organizations in California to launch an exciting new project that will test-drive new messages to change hearts and minds on LGBT equality. Our coalition has convened four trainings across the state; sign up for one to participate in this unique project!

9th Circuit denies attempt to rehear Prop 8 case

We're 3 for 3 in the courts on Prop 8: on June 5th, the 9th Circuit denied an attempt to rehear and possibly overturn the decision declaring Prop 8 unconstitutional. The case is now set to head to the Supreme Court, the biggest stage of all, and we need your support to win.

Bring some sanity to the War on Drugs

The so-called "War on Drugs" has wasted billions of taxpayer dollars, given birth to the prison-industrial complex, and destroyed lives and communities. SB 1506 in Sacramento will begin to reform this corrupt system by making drug possession a misdemeanor rather than a felony. Help pass it!

Call Out the Vote in NC

Sign up now for a short training to learn how you can assist in motivating North Carolinians to vote NO on anti-gay Amendment One.

$1 million to defeat anti-gay Amendment One

On May 8th, North Carolina will vote on Amendment One, which bans marriage equality and any other form of recognition for same-sex couples. Polls show the public increasingly against Amendment One, but our opponents just began running an ad this weekend that spreads lies about same-sex families and urges a Yes vote on Amendment One. Our side has ads of its own, but we need the money to get them on the air.

Tell the DNC: Pony up to fight for 2012 marriage equality ballot initiatives!

We're launching a campaign to make sure the DNC chips in to fight for equal rights at the ballot in 2012 as they did in 2008 to fight Prop 8. The DNC jointly raised $29.1 million in January alone -- they can chip in a fraction of that to help fight for equal rights. We've had Democrats' backs in the voting booth for years -- help make sure they have ours at the ballot.

Honor Valentine's Day, lift the Prop 8 stay

The 9th Circuit overturned Prop 8, but there's another stay on the decision. People in same-sex couples are literally dying to get married while the Prop 8 trial drags on. Ask the courts to honor Valentine's Day and lift the Prop 8 stay!

BREAKING: Prop 8 ruled unconstitutional by 9th Circuit!

We're 2 for 2 in the courts on defeating Prop 8. Now comes the big stage. Our opponents, ProtectMarriage.com and the National Organization for Marriage have already stated they're planning to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court to make sure California same-sex couples remain second-class citizens. They're all in. We have to be too.
