Summer is winding down, but vacation season is just getting started!
This November, marriage for lesbian and gay couples is on the ballot in four states - Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington. This means we have the opportunity to win marriage at the ballot box for the first time ever! We want you to be part of history!
Between now and November, Equality Texas is joining with United for Marriage to mobilize supporters like you to take a "volunteer vacation" to one of the four ballot states and help secure the freedom to marry.
What is a volunteer vacation? It's simple.
Marriage supporters from Texas will travel to ME, MD, MN, or WA. You will receive a full orientation and training, then work with a dedicated team on a campaign to win marriage equality. Spend a week, two weeks, or a month - it's up to you!
United for Marriage will work with you to arrange your travel, housing, and transportation plans.
Ready to get your volunteer vacation started?
Over the past year, we've already seen state legislatures pass marriage bills and federal courts rule against DOMA. And now this November, we have four strong chances for the first marriage victories at the ballot box.
There has never been a more pivotal moment in the movement to win the freedom to marry for all loving and committed couples. That's why it is crucial that marriage supporters from all regions of the country, including Texas, take action now and help us win on election day.
Only 55 days remain until Election Day. We need all hands on deck to win these important battles.
I know supporters like you will make Texas proud as you travel to make this Election Day one for the history books.
Thank you for taking action,
Interim Executive Director, Equality Texas
