HRC President Announces Additional $25,000 Investment in Minnesota

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

HRC is investing an additional $25,000 in the fight against a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality in Minnesota. To date, HRC has invested over $1 million as well as staff resources in Minnesota.

HRC President Chad Griffin made the announcement tonight at a performance of the play ‘8.’ Chad’s in Minnesota as part of HRC’s six-state Get Out the Vote tour, part of HRC’s largest-ever mobilization effort to ensure 2012 is a year of milestone victories for marriage equality.

Earlier tonight, Chad appeared with Minnesota Vikings kicker Chris Kluwe and Minnesota Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar at Minnesotans United's Vote No Kick-Off. The event drew a crowd of 5,000 equality supporters.

HRC is a proud supporter of the coalition, Minnesotans United for All Families, working to defeat the amendment banning same-sex marriage in the state.  HRC has set up a special fund – HRC Minnesota Family Freedom PAC – to direct 100 percent of your contribution to defeat the anti-marriage constitutional amendment in Minnesota.
