Minnesotans United Lawn Signs Flying off the Shelves!
July 30, 2012 by Trevor Chandler, Senior Regional Field Organizer
There are many different barometers on campaigns of the intensity of the grassroots support, and we’ve been seeing them all over the place: thousands of volunteer shifts being filled, countless letters to the editor being sent in, and conversations being sparked in living rooms across Minnesota. But this week we saw yet another indicator: Minnesotans United for All Families lawn signs are flying off the shelves at a record pace! Our first shipment sold out so quickly that we had a waiting list hundreds long of people who wanted to get their hands on a few as soon as we got them back in stock; and this Monday they were in luck!
Folks are streaming into the office to pick theirs up, some more than ten at a time. The signs allow Minnesotans to show their pride in being a part of this movement by not only being visible but investing in the campaign as well. This grassroots intensity to donate puts an additional highlight on the fact that we have over 25,000 individual Minnesotan donors who are powering this campaign not only with their funds but with their time and action.
And the showing of support doesn’t stop with the yard signs - people have been flocking to the Minnesotans United online store for shirts, bumper stickers and other swag I’ve been seeing all over the state!
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.
