Equality California is the largest statewide LGBT organization in the U.S., working to achieve equality and secure legal protections for LGBT people. Equality California sponsors legislation and coordinates efforts to ensure its passage, lobbies legislators and other policy makers, builds coalitions, develops community strength and empowers individuals and other organizations to engage in the political process.
As an employee of Equality California, Leanne Pittsford, CEO of Start Somewhere, developed and executed all aspects of the Wedding Registry for Equality California, the first wedding registry of its kind during the No on Prop 8 campaign. The program was up and running in 21 days and raised $2.2MM in six months, largely from new donors. Since the completion of the Prop 8 campaign, the Wedding Registry was transitioned to a Gift Registry, at this link. Today, Start Somewhere continues to provide ongoing support for Equality California’s communications and online teams.
Start Somewhere works with Equality California in the following areas:
Equality California is online at www.eqca.org and the gift registry can be found at http://www.eqcaregistry.org/site/c.pvKWL5MPIsG/b.4468447/k.BEEB/Home.htm.
