Pro-equality wind to lift both East and West Wings

by Jeremy Hooper

Cool appointment for a pro-equality voice:

This morning, the White House announced the appointment of the American Foundation for Equal Rights co-founder and board member Schake KristinaKristina Schake as Special Assistant to the President and Communications Director to First Lady Michelle Obama.

“Kristina was instrumental in the conception of the American Foundation for Equal Rights and she’s played a key role in every strategic success we’ve had as an organization. She’s one of the most intelligent and valuable resources the equality movement has ever seen. We’re sad to see her go but, are extremely proud of where she’s headed.”

Excellent. On marriage equality, the President could certainly use a special assist and the First Lady could certainly have more direct communication.
