The Right Wing is Taking Action, Too . . .

. . . and they're just as motivated as ever.

The American Family Association is equally aware of the new White House Website, especially of its Civil Rights Agenda page that lists President Obama's plan to fight for LGBT equality.

The AFA has sent out an action alert to its members, inciting them with hateful language, calling homosexual love "perverted sex" and calling our fight for equal rights "special rights." (They're also on the offense, targeting Campbell's and PepsiCo for their enormous support for the LGBT community. To find out what they're up to, go to AFA Online. You'll find plenty.)

As a community, we need to be sure our voices are equally heard and just as strong as this powerful, organized opposition. There are many things you can do.

1. Send a postcard to President Obama asking him to repeal DOMA.

2. Contact the White House directly and voice your support of Obama and our equal rights:

Comments: 202-456-1111
Switchboard: 202-456-1414
FAX: 202-456-2461
White House Contact Form
White House website

3. Send this mass letter to the president

4. Read and Sign the Petition to expand the Civil Rights Act to LGBT rights.

The list goes on. Visit the sites listed on the right of this blog under "Take Action" and see what they're doing. Don't let the homophobia of right-wing trample on us again.
