PG&E Charges Fight To Protect Maqrriaage with $250,000 in Support

The fight to protect the fundamental freedom to marry received a power boost from Pacific Gas & Electric Company—to the tune of $250,000. PG&E, Northern and Central California’s utility provider, announced its contribution to NO on 8–Equality California at a press conference today in San Francisco.
Across California, individuals and businesses like PG&E are pledging to vote NO on Proposition 8 because they know it’s wrong to single out one group of people to be treated differently.
But PG&E’s support doesn’t end there.
In addition to the $250,000 contribution, PG&E will become a founding member of the Equality Business Advisory Council, an organization that will challenge other businesses to join NO on 8 in supporting fairness and equality for all people.
That’s what this campaign is about—fairness and equality. We all deserve the freedom to marry, and PG&E stands behind this idea.
This level of early support is critical. With businesses like PG&E—and people like you—behind us now, we are able to buy television advertising time for the NO on 8 campaign at a fraction of the cost we would spend if we waited to buy it in the fall. The campaign is also able to open field offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego this weekend!
With this type of combined support, we will make sure we protect the freedom to marry, a right that all Californians deserve.
