The Courage Campaign has launched a 50-state strategy to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which is also being challenged in federal court cases and by Congress.



The plan, in conjunction with longtime activist Cleve Jones, will be managed on a grassroots level, with efforts in each of the 435 congressional districts.



"From the reddest and most homophobic, to the bluest and pro-LGBT, everyone can play a part," Courage Campaign's Adam Bink wrote in a call to action Wednesday.



The campaign is looking for local coordinators, volunteers, and donations to run their effort.



"Look, Iíve been in this movement a long time and Iím nearly 60 (if can you believe it)," Jones wrote in a message to supporters. "Iím not saying itís made me wise, but itís given me a lot of memories. And Iíve never seen anything like the sea change weíve seen in the last two years. Now is the time to finish the job."
