With your help we can stave off complacency and maintain momentum by using this "marriage moment" as a call to action for every American that values justice and equality to stay and fight as we face the battles that lie ahead and the potential if not inevitable backlash.

To that end, we have Taken the Vow and offered a $1,000,000 Challenge Grant to Lambda Legal -- the oldest, largest, and strongest LGBTQ legal organization in the country and the most effective and respected advocacy group within this community. With an unparalleled track record of success, Lambda Legal has been leading the fight for equality -- and winning -- for more than 40 years. As an organization keenly aware of its role as part of a broader movement, no other organization has the experience or is better suited to coordinate the strategy for a multitude of issues among multiple partner organizations than Lambda Legal.

Say #IDO for people across our country who need allies and supporters.

Say #IDO to stand with the LGBTQ Community to show our opponents the strength of this movement.

Say #IDO as a symbol of America's collective resolve to ensure "Liberty and Justice for All."
