Dear Supporter,
We are writing you with an urgent request to make a contribution to Equal Rights Washington. 

Why the urgency? With each passing day, the prospects for securing marriage equality in 2012 look better and better. You have most likely seen many positive media stories recently, including the encouraging pieces in The Seattle Times, Seattle Gay News and even on Fox News. There are many strong indications that now is the time to make Washington the 7th Marriage Equality State.
But the bottom line is this:  We will not be successful if we don’t have the money to organize a winning campaign.
The groundwork needs to be done now and we are doing it. You might have received by now an invitation to a local organizing meeting  (if you have not, you will get one soon). Or you might have met one of our field volunteers who have collectedly gathered over 26,000 marriage equality postcards to deliver to legislators! We already have two nights of phone banking a week from our Seattle office, and we will be adding other locations. Your contribution today will fund our field program, professional and grassroots lobbying, research and media.
We need your financial support today to implement our plan to pass marriage equality in the Legislature. And with your ongoing support, we’ll be ready to defend the law if our opponents seek to repeal through a referendum in the fall of 2012.
Please make a meaningful contribution to ERW today!
