HRC, Freedom to Marry, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund launched United for Marriage this morning, a national effort to recruit volunteers for the state marriage campaigns.

The campaign will use two programs to harness the growing support for marriage for same-sex couples nationwide into concrete, on-the-ground action before voters decide on the freedom to marry in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington on Nov. 6:

  • Volunteer Vacation, in which volunteers commit a week to one of the state campaigns, is recruiting now.
  • Drive for Marriage, to be unveiled later, will place volunteers in states near them for a weekend.

United for Marriage believes 2012 is a crucial chapter in securing marriage for all loving couples, with numerous court and legislative victories in recent years and recent polls showing that a majority of Americans now support marriage equality.
