We can win in the Senate

TUESDAY, MAY 21, 2019

Dear Friend—As you know, the US House of Representatives did the unthinkable (but expected) and passed one of the greatest legislative threats we've ever faced, the grossly misnamed Equality Act (HR 5). The legislation is really the In
equality Act, because it proposes sweeping legal provisions to benefit the LGBT community at the expense of people of faith, churches, and all Americans.

>>> Give $15 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $25 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $50 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $100 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $250 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $500 to help NOM fight this legislative threat
 
>>> Give $1,000 or more to help NOM fight this legislative threat

It was extremely disappointing to see every Democrat in the House support this legislation, which attacks marriage supporters, imposes gender ideology on our nation and strips Americans of their religious liberty rights. Eight turncoat Republicans also betrayed their constituents to vote for the legislation. The good news is that with the bill now moving to the U.S. Senate, we are in a far stronger position to defeat it.
 
NOM is mounting an all-out effort to defeat this legislation. We've run online ads nationwide, which have been seen by over one million people. Here's an example:

We've also launched a new website and social media effort to educate and engage Americans. Moreover, our petition to members of the House generated hundreds of thousands of contacts with members of Congress and their key staff members. Now we are undertaking an even more aggressive effort in the U.S. Senate.

To be successful in stopping HR 5, the Inequality Act, it's critical that we reach and inform more Americans about what is at stake. The only way to do that is to raise additional funds. I am asking you to consider making an emergency financial contribution to help us defeat HR 5 in the Senate.
 
Fortunately, thanks to the generosity of one of our best supporters, every person who contributes to NOM during the balance of the month will see their contribution matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $50,000 in matching funds. I hope you will take advantage of this incredible opportunity so that we can continue our all-out effort to defeat this bill.
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $15
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $25
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $50
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $100
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $250
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $500
 
>>> I'll make an emergency contribution of $1,000 or more
 
There has never been a more pernicious, damaging attack on us and our values passed by the US House in American history. How bad is it? In a word, awful.
 
HR 5 makes demonstrating support for traditional marriage illegal as "sex discrimination" under federal law. It imposes a radical gender ideology that threatens the privacy and safety of girls and women. It allows biological men to compete against women in athletics, even though they have a huge physical advantage. And it strips Americans of their religious liberty rights to oppose the LGBT agenda.
 
There are three things that you can do right away to help us defeat this legislation:

  1. Make an immediate financial contribution to NOM so that we can ramp up our campaign to derail this bill.

    We need our ads to reach not 1 million as they already have, but 100 million. We need our petition to be signed not by 10,000 people as it was, but by 100,000 or more. We need every Senator to know how bad this legislation truly is, and to hear from their constituents that they demand that it be defeated.

    Keep in mind that your donation will double thanks to the matching campaign that is underway. Please be as generous as possible.
     

  2.  If you have not already done so, please sign our petition to the US Senate expressing your opposition to HR 5, the Inequality Act.

    When you sign the petition, key US Senators and their staffs will receive an email in your name informing them that you want them to oppose the bill. After you have signed, please forward it to all your friends, family and contacts and ask them to join you in opposing this legislation by signing the petition themselves.
     

  3.  Please check out our new website that is focused on killing this dangerous legislation.

    Invite everyone you can reach through social media and email to also check out the site and get involved.

We've got a huge fight on our hands. Already, one Republican Senator has announced support for this bill. We expect that some others may join her so as to avoid being labeled "anti-LGBT." But if we all work together, and if we have the funding we need, I do believe that this bill can killed. It's up to us, though. Please get involved immediately.
 
Thank you for standing up for your beliefs and your values by supporting our work at this critical time. I really appreciate it.

Faithfully,
Brian S. Brown
