While the religious right pushes their divisive Values Agenda, were fighting for health, freedom, and science!
On September 22nd, the who's who of the religious right is gathering in Washington, D.C. for a massive "Values Voter" summit. This event comes on the heels of the hollow "Values Agenda" that dominated Congress this summer and through which the religious right forced votes on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, an all-out assault on stem cell research, and floated legislation attacking a woman's right to choose. It's no secret that these issues have nothing to do with the values that most Americans hold dear.
Were fighting back. Over the last month, 22,304 of you took part in our survey, helping us define the Real American Values agenda. The Real American Values agenda YOU created is focused on:
Now were going to put your values into action! Today, were announcing our Real American Values Campaign! Over the next month, we are going to take the real values that you helped draft to cities, schools, and neighborhoods across the country, encouraging the millions of Americans who share our vision to join our fight. But we need your help! Here are three things that you can do right now to help grow our army:
- Stopping the religious right's assault on a woman's freedom to make her own medical decisions
- Protecting the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans from the religious right's bigoted assault on their personal freedom
- Fighting the religious right's war on stem cell research, defending health and hope
Over the next few weeks, you can track our progress here and see how many Americans have signed the petition that you helped craft.
