Friday April 24 - Public Hearing on Marriage Equality

Dear friends:

Maine’s marriage campaign is moving to the next level. The public hearing on the marriage bill has been scheduled for Friday, April 24 at Cony High School in Augusta.

Make no mistake about it—April 24 will be the single most important day of this campaign outside of the final vote. The media, legislators, governor, and people of Maine will be watching.

Our opponents—Michael Heath and the Christian Civic League, Bob Emrich and the Maine Marriage Alliance, and national groups like Tony Perkins' Family Research Council—have already announced they will have over 1,000 people at the hearing.

We cannot let the opposition outnumber us on this critical day. The LGBT and allied community must come together like never before. Please join us in Augusta and bring your family and friends with you. Children are encouraged to attend—this will be a family-friendly event.

RSVP for the hearing by sending an email to Be sure to include your name, address and phone number. Once you RSVP, you’ll receive an automatic response with the important details about the hearing.

Get ready for a day you'll never forget. This is history in the making!


p.s. Please forward this message to friends and allies.
