HRC Leading Coalition’s Weekend Canvass on Long Island, Staten Island and in Buffalo

On Saturday, June 18 from 11am-3pm Long Island residents will canvass door-to-door in a push to pass marriage legislation before the end of the 2011 session. Meet us at the intersection of King Road and East Main Street in Smithtown at 11am to knock on doors and rally supporters.  Join us!  Contact Adrian Matanza at Adrian.Matanza@hrc.org or 702-526-7105.

Also on Saturday, we'll be in Buffalo from 11am-6pm downtown. Supporters will gather at 722 Elmwood Ave., in front of the Spot Cafe to collect signed postcards and contact legislators on the spot, running a "stop and dial" phonebank to area legislators. Come find us!  Contact Karl Bach at Karl.Bach@hrc.org or 202-280-5407.

We're also in Staten Island collecting postcards to senators and stopping people on the street, asking them to call their senators.  Today we'll meet at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal - Manhattan side (take the 1  or R train to South Ferry, or  4/ 5  to Bowling Green). We will meet outside the main concourse.  Contact Stephen Anderson at Stephen.anderson@hrc.org or 202-841-2237.

Our work this weekend comes as New Yorkers United For Marriage continues actions across the state that showcases the deep and mainstream support for marriage equality legislation in New York State.
