Courage Campaign Success Stories

Courage Campaign Year in Review 2011

Thanks to your hard work and generous support…

We led a delegation of California progressives to the White House. We hosted our first Spirit of Courage Awards. We got Blue Shield to stop their outrageous 18% increase on nearly 200,000 California customers. We partnered with Sen. Dianne Feinstein to win an historic victory in the US Senate when the Judiciary Committee voted to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act through Sen. Feinstein’s Respect for Marriage Act. We interrupted House Speaker John Boehner’s golf game at a fancy resort frequented by the 1% and presented him with almost 30,000 signatures demanding that he focus on the American Jobs Act. We protested Rep. Michele Bachmann with an organized flash mob during the GOP state convention in Los Angeles. We celebrated the end of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” With our partners, we filed the “Millionaires Tax to Restore Funding for Education and Essential Services Act of 2012.”
