Twin Cities Pride Kicks Off Summer Launch of MN Vote No Campaign
June 29, 2012 by Trevor Chandler, Associate Regional Field Director
Minnesotans United for All Families is already one of the largest, most sophisticated grassroots statewide campaigns the state has ever seen; and this past weekend it got even bigger. At Twin Cities Pride, the third largest in the country, Minnesotans United blanketed the crowd with over 2,000 volunteers and at any given point there were 400 volunteers in the park getting voters to not only pledge to vote no, but also commit to having a conversation with their friends and family about why they should oppose this harmful amendment.
The sight was incredible; the park was transformed into a sea of the campaign’s signature orange and you couldn’t spot a person without a campaign sticker, which meant they had taken action and pledged to vote no.
Also integral to raising awareness to vote no was the amazing HRC Twin Cities Steering Committee who volunteered their time all weekend putting on incredible events and finding new HRC members and volunteers looking to join the fight. In addition to the six HRC staff on the ground working directly with the campaign and financial support through our MN Family Freedom PAC, the Human Rights Campaign is proud to be a member of the coalition to defeat this amendment. Working together, we will beat this thing.
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.
