Rallying against Discrimination in Minnesota
November 6, 2012 by Dan Rafter, Associate Director of Communications
Upwards of 10,000 pro-equality volunteers are on the ground in Minnesota today, working with Minnesotans United for All Families and urging voters to reject a proposed constitutional amendment that would discriminate against loving, committed same-sex couples.
The campaign’s outreach efforts have been phenomenal: more than 25,000 volunteers reached out to a million Minnesotans via phone calls and doorknocking. Today alone, volunteers continue to man the phones and pound the pavement – making more than 200,000 phone calls and knocking on 150,000 doors.
Minnesota Vikings punter and straight ally Chris Kluwe was rallying supporters and helping volunteers Get Out the Vote on the University of Minnesota campus today.
