Dear Garden State Equality Members,

Mark Zuckerberg – founder of Facebook – will be hosting a fundraiser for Governor Chris Christie.
We need your help.

Mr.  Zuckerberg and Facebook have made major strides in the past few years, turning the world’s largest social network into a more open and inclusive place for the LGBT community. We find it deeply disappointing that now he chooses to support Governor Christie in his mission to suppress our rights. Let’s be clear - Governor Christie is the sole reason that New Jersey does not have marriage equality. Mr. Zuckerberg should know that every dollar donated to Governor Christie is a dollar donated to keeping New Jersey’s LGBT families in their current status as second class citizens – denied the fundamental freedom to marry the person that they love.

Today Garden State Equality is launching a grassroots advocacy campaign to persuade Mark Zuckerberg to abandon his fundraiser. We don't understand why Mr. Zuckerberg would ally himself with a politician who would deny equality to so many New Jersey families. We need our tens of thousands of members to make their voices heard via email and social media.

Below, you can send Mr. Zuckerberg an email directly demanding that he cancel his fundraiser for Governor Christie. Please share this far and wide with your family and friends.

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

I urge you to reconsider holding a fundraiser for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. You have made Facebook a haven of inclusion and equality; please extend this to your personal support of our leaders. Governor Christie singlehandedly stopped hundreds of thousands of New Jerseyans from having the fundamental freedom to marry the person they love.

I ask that you refuse to support Chris Christie because he vetoed marriage equality.

Thank you.

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook CEO
