For Jeanette and all who believe in equality
One of the propositions on this year's ballot is one that is very important to me. Marriage is about love & commitment and the decision to do so is between two people, any two people, and is their decision alone. The fact that there are those who wish to make marriage a double standard is just plain wrong. Love is love.
When Jeanette reached out to me, I instantly knew I wished to support her and her badass grassroots cause. If you believe in equality, I urge you to check out her website and share your voice. All you need to do is take a photo with No on 102 somewhere in the photo.
In my photo, I also included No on 8, as that is our proposition here in California. Your photo need not be perfect, as demonstrated with mine, the message is what is important. Then send your photo to Jeanette, or upload to her Flickr group and know you have made a difference.
Jeanette is also holding a giveaway for everyone who submits their photo to the Flickr group. I am donating a BE THE CHANGE necklace and there are some really great items being donated to support this cause.
My amazing cousin Chris, is also doing his part by being part of a project called We Stand for Change. You can see it here and here. He is not in the actual video, but his voice is that of the homeowner with the family. He sent it along last night with this note:
I'm VERY proud to share with you this new video I am a part of. It was created by a small group of Bay Area musicians, producers, and filmmakers who gathered to watch the final presidential debate. This song and video is the culmination of what transpired over the next eleven days. Please watch it and share it with others. There is very little time left before the election, and we hope this video encourages all people to get out and vote for change through the candidates they believe in.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love my family? I so very much do.
Hope to see you at the polls on Tuesday.
