Dear Valued Member,
Happy #GivingTuesday! Today’s the day to stand with your Wyoming Equality friends across the state. Our organization provides critical support, outreach, and advocacy opportunities to LGBTQ Wyomingites and allies each year – but we need your help to do it.
As 2017 draws to a close, we as a community and state reflect on mounting adversity we’ve yet to face and the challenges we’ve overcome. During the legislative session, lawmakers attempted to legalize religious discrimination against the LGBTQ community on several occasions. On the national level, a more dangerous view has taken hold that turns even members of our community against our transgender military service-members, friends and family. To follow the path of fear is to risk giving into hatred, and so we must not only fight against the fear of others, but also seek to vanquish our own fears with an attitude of optimism and love.
At Wyoming Equality, we want to assure our friends that we are here to listen to you, see you, and support you during these tumultuous times.
Your support matters more today than perhaps it ever has before. We, as an LGBTQ community, must protect the idea that to afford fairness and decency to all, even those whose identities differ from our own, is to strengthen this state beyond anything it has ever achieved. You are instrumental in turning that idea into a historic reality. In this time of need, we and all marginalized people look to you to stand with us as a beacon of compassion and strength.
For this #GivingTuesday, donations will be doubled up to $10,000. Can we count on you to become a member of Wyoming Equality?
This is the Equality State in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is your bravery to stand up for what is right that will allow our state and our country to achieve the true equality and freedom upon which they were founded, equality and freedom that know no race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. You have the chance to stand with us and make history. You can pave the way to a legacy we can be proud of, one built on the belief that love always overcomes and that, in the end, love will always be triumphant.
So, stand with us. Lend us your voice, your bravery, and your strength. Become a member of Wyoming Equality and fight against the forces of exclusion and violence. They cannot win when we stand united. The fight starts here. You can make a difference for the LGBTQ community of Wyoming by donating whatever you can afford. Today, donations will be doubled up to $10,000. Your generous donation will allow us to provide support, education, and advocacy for LGBTQ Wyomingites and their families.
You can make a difference today, for today is a new start. Today we begin to build a better future. Today we stand united. Today, we persevere together so that tomorrow, we can know true equality. Please donate $10, $25, or $50 to help get us there?
