Dear Marriage Supporter,
I always talk about how grateful I am for the wonderful grassroots supporters we have here at NOM, brave men and women like YOU who are willing to stand up and speak out in defense of marriage. And there's a reason I'm grateful: because when we band together in support of marriage, it works!
A few weeks ago when I wrote to you urging you to contact your federal legislators urging them to support the Marriage Protection Amendment introduced by Rep. Tim Huelskamp, you were quick to respond. Well, now I can write to you to tell you that when you spoke up, your elected leaders listened!
The proposed amendment now has over 40 cosponsors signed on! Most significantly, it has been announced that the first Democrat (hopefully of many!) has joined as a cosponsor: Rep. Nick Rahall of West Virginia's 3rd District!
Please click here right away to send a letter to Rep. Rahall and your own Representatives, expressing your appreciation for his stand and urging your own elected officials to follow his example in supporting this crucial legislation!
Rep. Rahall's support proves once again that marriage is an issue that cuts past partisan politics and special interests, speaking universally to our shared common sense principles, such as every child's right to have both a mom and a dad.
The progress already made on getting this amendment to a vote on the floor of the House is only possible because NOM supporters like you band together and take the time to tell your elected leaders that you, and the majority of Americans, stand for marriage — and that those who represent us in Washington need to do the same.
I hope you'll also consider donating generously to NOM today so that we can continue our work in coordinating action items like this one, helping join the voices of pro-marriage citizens everywhere into a united battle cry.
Thank you again for all you do for marriage. Keep it up — it's working!
