MEET THE RIGHT TO MARRY YOUNG ACTIVIST TEAM!
BLOGGING FROM THE ROAD
Thirty-five students and young activists from New York to California will hit the road this summer with the support of Soulforce, Empire State Pride Agenda and Vassar College’s ACTOUT!
Four distinct routes covering the entire state of New York: Poughkeepsie to Long Island, Albany to the St. Lawrence Seaway, Syracuse to the Finger Lakes, and Rochester to Niagara Falls! Visiting senators’ and assemblymen/women’s home district offices and the surrounding communities.
July 14-28, 2007
We will hold townhall meetings, attend community events & church services and speak with state legislators and their constituents about same-gender marriage, urging them to support marriage inclusion legislation in New York!
New York is closer than any state in the nation to realizing marriage equality! Governor Eliot Spitzer has introduced a bill to extend marriage rights to same-gender couples and we need your help to garner support for it! We are looking for dedicated young activists who can make a two-week commitment to making marriage equality a reality. All expenses will be paid, including transportation, training in NYC, food and lodging. Apply to join the ride!

"We will not ask whether this proposition of legalizing same-sex marriage is popular or unpopular; we will not ask if it’s hard or easy; we will simply ask if it’s right or wrong…I think we know… what the answer to that question is."
-Governor Eliot Spitzer (to the ESPA)
