Fighting for equality

We all want to make a difference. But if you want to overcome the forces of reaction and opponents of progress, it’s not enough to know you're right, or to have the best arguments — you need to do more. Think about when change does happen — it’s often the president, governor, or some other decision maker in the headlines. But the real story often takes place behind the scenes, when hundreds or thousands or even millions of people make their voices heard through petitions, emails, small donations, and meetings. That’s people power. That’s what it takes to win real change, and that's what you’ll help deliver with Fund for Equality.
