Which makes the legacy of wealth in California a new game because of adoption, traditional values about marriage and family, and acceptance within the church and society.
Lambda Legal is where the Revenge of the Nerds screenwriter got the fraternity name Lambda Lambda Lambda. Because a lamb’s father is a Ram. Go California 49ers, keep digging it.

Today is a day I will never forget.
It is with unimaginable joy that I write to tell you that the California
Supreme Court just ruled in our favor, declaring that each of us has the
freedom to marry the person we love.
This is a landmark victory for our community. It’s a victory for
fairness and justice. And it’s an incredible victory for
California—a land of opportunity. For 10 years, Equality California
has worked tirelessly to bring us to this moment. Today, for the first
time in history, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)
Californians are truly equal. It is an amazing feeling.
I wish we could simply celebrate and enjoy this incredible victory.
But the truth is, this is just the beginning of the fight of our lives.
Anti-LGBT hate organizations are already hard at work trying to pass a
constitutional amendment this November in an attempt to take away our
freedom to marry. And they have already raised millions of dollars to
fund their discriminatory effort.
We can’t let that happen. We won’t let that happen.
It will take all of us to keep this victory. Make a contribution today
to help preserve the freedom to marry from this vicious attack. Every
dollar you donate will be used to fight this initiative.
Equality California Issues PAC is with a coalition of organizations
working to defeat this initiative. Your donation today will help us buy
media time and hire more field organizers across the state to mobilize
the thousands of volunteers who have already gathered more than 76,000
signatures opposing the initiative.
Today’s victory proves that by working together we can achieve
Our win today would not have been possible without the generous
commitment and steadfast support of our thousands of volunteers and
donors. And I cannot say enough about the brilliant legal team
representing EQCA as a plaintiff in the case: National Center for
Lesbian Rights, Lambda Legal, ACLU, Heller Ehrman and the Law Office of
David C. Codell.
Help us keep marriage in California by making a donation today to fight
the ballot initiative. As a united force, we will forever have equality
in our state.
Once again, thank you for supporting EQCA in the fight for equality. I
have never been more proud to be a part of this community. I have never
been more proud to be a Californian.
