The Courage Campaign family of organizations is devoted to bringing progressive change and full equality in California and across the country. Courage Campaign is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization. The Courage Campaign Institute is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Courage Campaign Issues Committee is active on statewide and local ballot campaigns and is registered with the California Fair Political Practices Commission. In 2011, Courage members voted to create Courage Campaign SuperPAC to make our progressive voices louder. Partnering with American Bridge 21st Century, our SuperPAC's first project is the Mitt Gets Worse campaign, created to tell the truth about Mitt Romney's record on LGBT issues.
A "member" of the Courage Campaign is defined as any person who has participated in at least one online action within the Courage Campaign family of organizations. Members are generally contacted by the Courage Campaign based on their expression of interest in specific issues or categories.
