I know many of us wonder how to best respond to the mean spirited Yes on 1 commercials that vilify families we live in or families we care about... here's one way (also, vote now - absentee ballots can now be requested online -- http://www.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/index.pl and give money )
Please join us for a Play Date for Equality on Columbus Day, October 12.
The No on 1 / Protect Maine Equality campaign is hosting a Play Date for Equality for
families to show their support marriage equality. We have invited the media to show them the rich diversity of Maine families who support marriage equality. Maine
We will provide cider and cookies; you bring yourselves, toys/balls/frisbees for the park, and your kids, grandkids, nieces/nephews, neighbors, etc. We'd love to have older kids too who may have outgrown play dates but who want to show their support.It will not only be a fun afternoon, but an important one too. On that day we will be just 19 days from election day and showing the diversity of support for marriage equality is a critical part of our campaign.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend, by emailing or calling me. And bring all your friends!Thank you.
