Take Action for Marriage Equality
With the 2012 election fast approaching, there is great hope that this year will be a tipping point for LGBTQ equality at the ballot box. Voters in Maine, Maryland, and Washington have the opportunity to approve marriage equality laws, while Minnesota voters will hopefully vote “no” to writing discrimination into their state constitution.
No matter where you live, you can still take action to support marriage equality this election season. Here are some ways you can get involved:
Volunteer Vacation for Equality
Come out and spend a weekend or a week—the time commitment is up to you—working on one of the equality campaigns. United for Marriage will work with you every step of the way to arrange your travel, housing, and transportation. You’ll receive a full orientation and training, and then work with a dedicated team on a campaign to win marriage equality.
HRC’s revolutionary Call4Equality tool harnesses the power of Facebook to let you get in touch with the people you know in these states. Call4Equality reminds you who you know in these states and then automatically creates personalized call lists and scripts for you to drum up votes and volunteers in this election.
If you live in (or near) Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, or Washington and haven’t gotten involved yet, there is no time like the present! Click on your state’s campaign below to find out what you can do to support marriage equality locally.
