The Human Rights Campaign’s iconic equal sign has gone viral. On the first day of oral arguments in marriage equality cases before the Supreme Court, hundreds of thousands of Facebook users have changed their profile pictures to the red equal sign as a show of support for marriage equality.

Blog: Why We Fight
We wanted to personally thank Representative Earl Blumenauer for his continued support for animal rights!
He has added his name as co-sponsor of the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (H.R. 366) that helps prohibit spectator support for animal fighting events. This bill helps close the loopholes that allow for such events to continue through knowing attendance and bringing a minor to such events.
To help add your representatives name as co-sponsor of the bill, send your message through the Humane Society of the United States.
A nice card from our friends at Bryan Potter Designs.
Got our custom T-shirts just in time!
Fighting for the freedom to marry is an issue we have been deeply involved with for many years. Collectively and individually we have worked on the full range of LGBT issues, helping defend against attacks and forwarding an affirmative agenda.
That’s why when we get the opportunity to show our support for equality, we jump on it. And if that opportunity happens to be fun, tasty, and lets us support local businesses at the same time, all the better. Basic Rights Oregon’s annual Bites for Rights fundraiser, in which local restaurants and food carts donate a portion of their proceeds to the organization, is tomorrow and Winning Mark is excited to participate.
A couple of the establishments we plan on visiting are Big Ass Sandwiches, DC Vegetarian, Eleni’s, and Por Que No. We’ll share some photos on Twitter and Instagram using the event’s official hashtag, #BFR2012, and hope you will too.
