It sure has been an amazing summer...

And while the LGBT community was celebrating our stunning victory at the Supreme Court – toasting equality, dancing in the streets, and releasing heart-shaped balloons into the clear blue sky – Lambda Legal did not lose touch for one moment with what is really going on out there in America.

The truth is, in spite of our Supreme Court victory, two in five Americans still do not support the right of same-sex couples to marry. And you can be sure that people who don’t support your right to marry the person you love don’t support your equality in other aspects of your life either.  

In your workplace, your doctor’s office, your child’s school yard – in the street outside your front door… all of us remain vulnerable to the judgement of others – and the continued discrimination that comes with it.That’s why Lambda Legal needs 100 new members by the end of this month.

If you’re already a member, thank you so much for your support (and please consider forwarding this email to a friend!). But if you support equality for LGBT people, and you have not yet joined, please join right away.

As a new member of Lambda Legal, you will not only help us meet our August member drive goal, you will also sustain our work on key initiatives in the months ahead, including…

  1. Fighting the inclusion of overly-broad religious exemptions in anti-discrimination bills in the fall legislative sessions in statehouses across the country – and in the United States Congress.
  2. Standing up for the rights of LGBT youth as they return to school – and are at risk of bullying and harassment by their peers.
  3. Battling anti-LGBT discrimination of every kind wherever we see it crop up across America.

Won’t you help us secure and defend the civil rights of LGBT people and those living with HIV in the U.S.? Join today and you’ll receive…

…your Lambda Legal membership card, proving your dedication to equality for everyone in America

… Impact magazine, our bi-annual publication with the latest news on the state of equality in our country

…a special invitation to our annual members-only teleconference on the status of LGBT rights in America

…invitations to our educational events, rallies and celebrations across the U.S.

Plus, as a special thank you gift for taking part in our August Member Drive, you'll also receive our distinctive Lambda Legal tote

Additionally, Lambda Legal needs you with us in the fight – today, tomorrow and until America is a land of equality and justice for all. The estate of John Barham and Dick Auer has made a remarkable matching gift of $1.25 million, which means your contribution today will be matched dollar for dollar.

Thank you for being part of our team.
