Fighting for Marriage Equality in Hudson Valley!

From Peekskill to White Plains, residents of New York State are joining the fight for Marriage Equality! Yesterday we held two phone banks with over 15 volunteers, both straight and gay joining us to fight for equal rights. At the Loft in White Plains we were joined by the Westchester Young Democrats who made phone calls to constituents key Senators in the area. The response was overwhelmingly positive and we transferred over 100 calls directly to district office voicemails urging a YES vote on marriage equality.

It was inspiring to see so many young individuals, both gay and straight, taking the time to call for marriage equality. The participation of so many volunteers from across the district truly shows that support for marriage equality cuts across all lines and all ages.

We are going to continue to have phonebanks every Thursday in Peeksill and White Plains, please join us and help us make history!

Peekskill: the Bean Runner, 201 South Division Street

When: Thursdays, 6-8:30 p.m.
