Support marriage equality in multiple states!
There's also a national effort of pro-LGBT bloggers to support the WIN MORE STATES fund of the group Freedom to Marry.
This addresses multiple states dealing with marriage equality issues this year: ME, MN, NC, NH, NJ, and WA. (Yes, I know NC isn't listed but it should be.... support the NC effort at the top of this post.)
Against all odds, we were victorious--for now--in NH, where the Republican-dominated legislature decided not to try to repeal marriage after all. In NJ, funds are needed to try to over-ride the governor's veto.
And most importantly, ME, NC, MN, and WA are having ballot fights for the FREEDOM TO MARRY. And the lines are sharply drawn.
In Minnesota, the Roman Catholic church is going in like a battleship. And remember, this is the state that gave us the virulently anti-gay Michelle Bachmann.
In Washington, a supportive legislator and governor are being second guessed by a brutal referendum fight.
In Maine, marriage supporters are going back to the ballot after a heart-breaking referendum two years ago.
As a community, we need to step up and help our brothers and sisters win the freedom to marry. You can help!
