Dear Marriage Supporter,
The Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will be holding a hearing on the same-sex marriage bill (SB116) next Tuesday afternoon, starting at 1:00pm. The hearing will be held in Room 2 in the East Wing of the Miller Senate Office Building (11 Bladen Street) in Annapolis.
This hearing and the subsequent committee vote is our first chance to derail the same-sex marriage bill – and throwing a major wrench in the plans of activists who have virtually guaranteed that they would push same-sex marriage through in Maryland this year.
Here’s what you can do:
1. Call your state senator – especially if he or she sits on the Judicial Proceedings committee – and urge him or her to vote no on the same-sex marriage bill. Politely, but firmly, tell them that the people of Maryland deserve the chance to be heard on this important issue. Click here to look up the phone number for your state senator.
2. Send an email to the members of the committee and to your own state senator. In less than 3 minutes you can customize and send the sample letter that we have prepared, reaching every member of the committee with your concerns about this same-sex marriage bill. Click here to send your email right now!
3. Tell a friend! Over the next week, same-sex marriage activists will be pressuring the committee to pass SB116. But if we make our voices heard, we can stop same-sex marriage in Maryland. Spread the word through email, Facebook, Twitter. Be sure to mention it to your friends at church this weekend, too.
4. Attend the hearing! There is ample parking within walking distance of the Senate Office Building. The hearing will start at 1:00pm and be held in Room 2 in the East Wing of the Miller Senate Office Building. Your presence is very important. Please try to make it out for all or part of the hearing.
With your help, we have a chance to send a message to Annapolis that will not soon be forgotten – hundreds, or even thousands, of Marylanders standing up for marriage.
