WINNING MARRIAGE THE INSIDE STORY OF HOW SAME-SEX COUPLES TOOK ON THE POLITICIANS AND PUNDITS—AND WON

Winning MarriageEn route to the Move to End Violence Strategic Thinking workshop in California I just finished an engaging, enlightening and inspiring book, WINNING MARRIAGE THE INSIDE STORY OF HOW SAME-SEX COUPLES TOOK ON THE POLITICIANS AND PUNDITS—AND WON. Written by MARC SOLOMON, the National Campaign Director for Freedom to Marry, this book offers an incredibly rare and precious  behind-the-scenes look into movement building for social change.

Through compelling storytelling Marc offers us a guided tour of the movement to win marriage equality, highlighting how this movement, “created an aspirational vision, developed a strategy to accomplish the vision, stuck with it through many tough years, built and relentlessly drove campaigns to put wins on the board, played to win electorally, told the human stories of why marriage matters to committed same-sex couples over and over and over, made the cause a bipartisan and multi-racial one, tapped into the American values of the Golden Rule and freedom, and enlisted new allies every step of the way and welcomed them as though they’d been with us from day one.”  As Marc says, “This is what a successful social movement looks like.”

This book is a gift to all of us who geek out on movement building, social change and strategy. Read it and let’s discuss!
