As we get ready to march for full federal equality next month, we also have to protect our rights in the few places we have them.
Marriage equality is under attack in Maine. The National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family, and other groups that bankrolled Prop 8 in California have out fundraised the local effort by 2-1. But no matter where you live, there's something you can do about it.
Don't let them stand their ground alone! Here are a couple things you can do right now.
1. Join the Virtual Phone Bank on September 27
Can you donate 2.5 hours to call voters in Maine on Sunday, September 27? All you need is a phone and a computer with internet. No long distance fees!
2. Take a Volunteer Vacation in October
Can you spend a week in Maine volunteering for the campaign to preserve marriage equality? They can even help you find housing! Sign up here.
Thanks for helping protect equality in Maine, and we'll see you in the streets next month!
