PHONEBANKING TO DEFEND NEW HAMPSHIRE'S MARRIAGE EQUALITY

What a joy it was to celebrate marriage equality here in New York last summer! However, there is a danger of slipping into complacency. Right now, there is a move in New Hampshire to repeal their established marriage equality policy. Their governor has promised to veto the repeal bill; however, the right is working hard to build a large enough legislative majority to overturn the governor’s veto. We cannot let this happen! A victory for the forces of discrimination would only embolden them to attempt the same in other states – including New York!

In order to keep this from happening, the marriage equality coalition is hosting a phone bank to call New Hampshire residents urging them to call their legislators to vote against an overturn. LID has agreed to work with the coalition and we will be phone-banking on March 13 and March 27.  Please join us.  It will be fun – you will be with your LID friends and colleagues. Details are below.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 27th, 6:30pm to 8:00 PM

WHERE: SEIU 1199, 330 W. 42nd Street, 7th Floor

RSVP to Jim Harvey at jbharvey49@yahoo.com with the date you wish to work.  If neither date works for you, let Jim know another Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening in March that does work, and arrangements can be made.
