Actor Alan Cumming sent out an email in support of the Courage Campaign Institute yesterday, asking fans and supporters to make a last minute tax-deductible donation before the end of 2013.
From the email:
You probably know me as an actor/director/writer. Maybe you saw me recently on CBS’ The Good Wife, on Broadway, or in London’s West End, but I’m also a committed activist. And as you’re deciding where to make your tax-deductible contributions before midnight on December 31st, I wanted to give a plug for one of my favorite progressive organizations, the Courage Campaign Institute.
Courage Campaign Institute exists because folks like us have the courage to care and to fight. Courage brings us together. The voices of many become one, speaking truth to power and demanding bold leadership to solve our nation’s challenges. Your contribution will sustain public education on critical issues, move public opinion, and help organize and train local leaders.
Hopefully, you’ve seen Courage’s recent emails and are aware of much of the great work accomplished in 2013 thanks to your help. Here are some highlights:
- Stopping the Koch Brothers from purchasing the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and eight other major newspapers — when others said it was impossible, Courage launched an innovative, ferocious campaign that torpedoed the deal.
- Ending Prop 8 and DOMA — the product of YEARS of work by Courage Campaign Institute to educate the public and move public opinion, which led to the Supreme Court made historic rulings in June. With 33 states still restricting marriage equality, our work is far from over.
- Fighting lies about Obamacare — when the right-wing front group, Generation Opportunity, launched a propaganda campaign — using free beer, pizza, models, and a creepy Uncle Sam to spread lies about health insurance and bribe college students into opting out of Obamacare — Courage launched the Obamacare Reality Response Team to educate the public and spread the truth about the Affordable Care Act.
Courage Campaign Institute needs you to keep doing this work in 2014. Please make a tax-deductible contribution before the end of the year.
