EVENT: Get Tickets to Hear Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager Steve Hildebrand Speak on Marriage Equality and LGBT Rights

Openly gay Steve Hildebrand, who helped kick off and guide Obama's successful presidential campaign, will be in San Francisco this Monday, September 28 to speak about his experience with the president's administration and its approach to LGBT rights and the marriage equality movement in California.

Hildebrand, who supports returning to the ballot to repeal Prop 8 in 2010, is currently advising the Courage Campaign, steering the research they're conducting that will inform them on how to craft the best ballot language to restore marriage equality in California. Though Love Honor Cherish filed language today, if Courage Campaign comes up with language that tests better, they'll put their efforts behind it.

In an email sent out today through the Courage Campaign, Hildrebrand said:
When people talk about the reasons why Barack Obama won both the Democratic presidential nomination and the White House, the extensive, robust research conducted by our campaign is rarely mentioned. And yet, as I know from first-hand experience, it was the most well-researched campaign in the history of modern politics.

Research is boring. It's not as sexy as big speeches or TV ads. But research is what informs the language used in those speeches and commercials. And that is what we need to change hearts and minds.
