Dear Marriage Supporter,
The marriage debate is heating up once again in Minnesota.
After months of posturing and behind-the-scenes lobbying, the latest battle for marriage in Minnesota began in earnest this week as same-sex marriage advocates formally launched legislation to redefine marriage in Minnesota. The proposed legislation sets the stage for a divisive debate that will challenge the loyalties of rural DFL members forced to choose between the pressure of party bosses and the beliefs of their constituents.
Take a Stand for Marriage!
Now is the moment to make sure our legislators get the message loud and clear: Marriage means a husband and a wife — giving children the love of the mother and father who made them. Several legislators are already — formally or informally — polling their constituents.
Here's what you can do:
Join me in St. Paul next Thursday, March 7th. Next Thursday, from 2-5pm, Minnesotans from across the state will be gathering at the State Capitol in St. Paul for a Marriage Lobby Day and Rally. Call ahead to set up an appointment with your state senator and representative, and then join us for the rally on the Capitol steps starting at 2:30pm.
Make sure your legislators hear from you today with a quick email, or to have even more impact, pick up the phone and give them a call.
Use this link to send your legislators an email. In 5 minutes or less, you can customize your message and send it to both your state senator and representative.
Share this email with at least 5 friends right now. We all know someone who believes in marriage but hasn't yet realized how easily they can get involved and make a difference. Forward this email or use the buttons below to share on Facebook or Twitter today!
The outcome is far from clear in Minnesota. At this point, our opponents do not have the votes to redefine marriage, but the outcome will come down to district by district — especially rural districts — throughout the state as you and your friends and neighbors make your voices heard.
Thank you for taking action today! I hope to see you in St. Paul next Thursday afternoon!
