Stand up and defend equality! This may be Equality Month, but the LGBT community is still under attack.
For example, in Maine’s election on November 3, Question 1 will ask voters to eliminate marriage rights for same-sex couples. This contest will come down to the wire, and it’s one we can’t afford to lose.
Thankfully, there is something you can do. This Saturday, the Courage Campaign, Equality California, Cal Dems, and the San Francisco Democratic Party are hosting a phone bank on campus to make sure Maine votes NO on 1.
From 12 to 4 in Eshleman Hall, we will call Maine’s citizens and tell them to vote NO on 1. We will tell them to reject the discrimination and bigotry which have pervaded our society, and denied equal rights for years.
Equality has strong momentum nationally, and we must make sure it continues. We can’t afford another Prop 8.
Come for a few hours, a few minutes, or however long you can. But, please do come–Maine’s LGBT community needs your help.
