At the heart of every religious tradition is love of humanity and love of creator – not hatred for our neighbors. Creating a climate of hate runs contrary to the very idea of faith – but that's exactly what the right wing in America is doing.

Whether or not we're people of faith, we cannot stay silent or stand idly by while a radical minority pushes a hateful agenda in God's name. Please stand with us and speak out today.

Prop 8: Not another year

In the latest twist in the saga to overturn Prop 8 – the ban on marriage for same-sex couples in California – the state Supreme Court has announced it will review a legal question that could delay the case for another year! Our allies at the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) continue to fight Prop 8 in court but they need our help.

While Prop 8 remains on the books, thousands of families are denied their basic equality guaranteed by the constitution.

HRC sent a letter to the California Supreme Court asking them to speed up their process. We have also called on the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals – which has "pressed pause" on equal marriage in California – to lift their stay on a lower court ruling that overturned Prop 8 and allow same-sex couples to marry just like everyone else. Please stand up for LGBT families and add your name to these letters by filling out the form below.
