Thanks to your generosity and resilience, this year Fight Back New York went hard at anti-gay senators and beat them. The work you helped us do brought New York one step closer to equality.
You helped drive an unprecedented amount – over $790,000 – into Fight Back New York, making it the largest independent political action committee focused on the New York state legislature this year. For the first time ever, a public campaign was waged to go after anti-gay elected officials – and we successfully took out every candidate we targeted. In a state with more than 96% incumbency reelection, that rarely if ever happens. And legislators notice when their colleagues don’t return to the new session.
The success we had with Fight Back New York sends a clear signal that pro-equality donors can be a real threat to anti-gay legislative candidates. All eyes are now on Albany as we watch to make sure they do the right thing. And we’ll be back again if they don’t.
Fight Back New York was created from the reaction and passion after the senate voted down the marriage bill. We would not exist without your support. Because we respect your generosity and value transparency, please click here to review a donor report that recaps the races we targeted and details our expenditures.
None of this would have been possible without you, and we urge you to stay in the fight until we finish the job and bring equality to New York.
Thank you. It’s been an honor to fight with you.
