Now is not the time to alienate anyone in the U.S.

Dear friend,

Congress is about to vote on amending the U.S. Constitution to deny marriage equality to same-sex couples. Never before has our Constitution been amended to take away anyone's rights. Yet our Senators will vote on this amendment in the next 48 hours.

It's urgent that we speak up now. This hateful divisiveness has no place in America. Please join me in saying so, at:

Equality in marriage is the civil rights issue of our generation. We can't let anyone, or any group, be singled out for discrimination based on who they are or who they love. Never have I been more certain of this than after seeing last month's inspiring Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco.

Thank you for standing up and being counted.
