We are at a watershed moment in the freedom to marry. This November, marriage for same-sex couples is on the ballot in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington. This means that, for the first time ever, we have the opportunity to win marriage at the ballot, sending a message to everyone that love is love, and family is family.
PFLAGers in those four states--36 chapters in all--are mobilized, energized, and working hard to support these campaigns. And not surprisingly, as is always the PFLAG way, many of you from our other 332 chapters and all of our supporters around the country are asking, “What can I do and how can I help?”
Now is the time to take action! Between now and November, PFLAG is joining with the United for Marriage coalition to mobilize, creating a simple process for individual PFLAGers and chapters to organize. With Election Day around the corner - and the proven effectiveness of the PFLAG voice to change hearts and minds - you can support the effort in these four states to get election results on the right side of history.
WAYS TO HELP:
MAKE CALLS! The United for Marriage staff will connect you to a state campaign so you and your group can make phone calls from where you are through virtual phone banks.
TRAVEL! United for Marriage will help you plan a Volunteer Vacation to one of the four states or a Drive for Marriage weekend road trip to a state near you. Volunteer vacationers travel to Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, or Washington, where they receive a full orientation and training, and then work with a dedicated team on the marriage equality campaign. United for Marriage will work with you and your group to find free housing, and will help you make your travel arrangements and are also working to match people with need with donated airline miles.
Do you live in one of the ballot measure states? You can help by offering to house Volunteer Vacationers!
DONATE AIRLINE MILES! United for Marriage will help you, your fellow chapter members, and your community supporters donate frequent flyer miles so Volunteer Vacationers can fly to a ballot state for a week…or longer.
This is a pivotal moment in the movement to win the freedom to marry for all loving and committed couples…and our chance to send a strong message that all couples should be able to make a loving and legal commitment to each other and their children.
Join other PFLAGers: take action now and help all our families win on Election Day.
Thank you for taking action today!
