Dialing for Marriage

Share This Page
September 18, 2009

Last week I wrote about the voter referendum that could repeal marriage for same-sex couples in Maine and suggested taking a volunteer vacation to help the No on 1 campaign. Now I can do you one better: next weekend you can help protect marriage in Maine without even leaving your house!

Next Sunday, September 27 is a national Day of Action, when supporters of equality across the country will pick up their phones to make sure that marriage-for-all remains the law of the land in Maine. I don’t know all the technical details, but the campaign says “All you need is a phone and a computer with an internet connection. No long distance fees, no dialing- the web-based software does it all.”

What I do know is that, by donating a couple hours next weekend, you’ll be part of the massive effort that is going to make sure that Question One doesn’t become this year’s Prop 8. And how cool will it be to know — when the results roll in on November 3rd — that you played a part in LGBT history?
