The Maine Event

This post comes from HRC Phone Bank Coordinator Kate Kramer:

HRC is partnering with Mainers United For Marriage to win marriage equality for all Mainers this November. Last week HRC hosted a group of new and returning volunteers at our weekly phone bank. We made calls to invite marriage equality supporters in Maine to local events and encourage them to sign their name to a newspaper ad in support of Question 1. Together we made over 400 calls, spoke with 70 Mainers, signed up 8 new volunteers and collected over 43 new signatures!

Will you and a friend join us at our next phone bank this Thursday, July 19 or next Thursday, July 26? We’ve a had several people bring friends with them to the phone bank, and it’s a great way to spend some time together and help the campaigns in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington. If you are interested in joining us, email We’ll provide all the equipment and training, and dinner will be provided.

No matter where you live, you can make a difference in Maine.  HRC has set up a special fund – HRC Maine Families PAC – to direct 100 percent of your contribution to help win marriage equality in Maine.  Together, we can mobilize the majority of Mainers who support marriage equality and win at the ballot this November.
