Campaigning for Equality Begins

We blogged last week on the first television ad to hit California airwaves around Proposition 8, which could take away marriage equality in the Golden State. Sam and Julia Thoron, two PFLAG parents (Sam is a former president of PFLAG National) star in the ad, which you can watch here.

ABC 7 in San Francisco sat down with Sam and Julia this week to talk with the couple, who have been married for 46 years, on why marriage equality for all of their children is so important. You can watch ABC 7's interview here.

As we get closer to Election Day, we can expect more advertisements from both sides of the issue. Soon, our policy opposition will also launch television ads, and we all need to do our part to counter any misinformation. Remember - telling our stories is such an effective way to open people's eyes. If you are looking for more strategy tips, be sure to read our September FYI on how to get the word out on defeating Proposition 8!
