2 good news this morning!!! Iowa just ruled that everyone should have the freedom to marry and discriminating against LGBT couples and banning them from being able to marry is unconstitutional!
And guess what!! We got 2 more sponsors today!!! Rep Jim McDermott who is our target for the 3rd week of writing (last week).... signed on! So you did it!!! Those of you (and I hope ALL of you wrote your letter) who sent the letter to his office and got all your friends to do that... have reminded him of his oversight and he has signed on!!!
97 cosponsors in 2 months is awesome!!! Let's keep the momentum going.
This week, we are writing to
Rep Diane E. Watson
2430 Rayburn HOB
Washington, DC 20515-0533
The suggested text of the letter can be found here.
Also, don't forget to call Rep Miller and McDermott's office to say thank you for signing on too.

Thanks goes to the tremendous work of Gina Caprio and Ms Kathy Drasky for spearheading this campaign. Without them reminding us every week to write letters.... Rep McDermott might not have signed on.
