Subject: We're coming to get you!
To: Teddy Douglas
I am a New Yorker. And I believe New York should be leading the
nation on equality. It's an embarrassment that five other states and
the District of Columbia have embraced marriage equality before New
That's why I'm so excited to share with you the news that I've joined
the Human Rights Campaign to lead its Campaign for New York Marriage.
The goal of our Campaign is simple: to elect state lawmakers who support marriage equality and to oust those who voted against it. We
plan on winning – but we need your help, right now, to fuel our campaign.
Please support the Campaign for New York Marriage. We'll use every single dollar in the New York fight for equality, beginning with Senate primary races happening right now.

It's simple math. We now need 6 more votes in the State Senate. This fall, with your help, we can make that happen. A warning to New York
State Senators who voted against marriage equality: we're coming to get you. And if you support equality, we will support you.
Your support is urgent. The Senate primaries are in full swing between now and September and the general election is in November.
Your support is critical. Our success will come down to how much money we can raise and spend in these races, many of which are against anti-equality incumbents with deep pockets.
One-hundred percent of your contribution goes to ensuring that we
have the votes to pass marriage equality: www.hrc.org/nymarriage
When you donate, you're ensuring that we have the resources to elect candidates who support equality and defeat candidates who don't.
PS Check out the New York Times article about the Campaign, and a huge thank you to everyone for your personal support.
