Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes and his partner, Freedom to Marry political director Sean Eldridge, have a made a huge commitment to the nonprofit push for marriage equality nationwide. The couple will match donations made to Freedom to Marry, Empire State Pride Agenda, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and Equality Maryland for the rest of this year.
Chris and Sean, who have been together for five years, have been active in LGBT equality and other political causes. In addition to being a Facebook cofounder, Chris was director of online organizing for the Obama campaign and yesterday launched his newest venture Jumo. Jumo is "a social network connecting individuals and organizations who want to change the world." You can find LGBT groups like GLSEN and Freedom to Marry on Jumo.
