The Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBT equality in Maine alongside state and local groups.
HRC made securing marriage equality in Maine a top priority.
On November 6, 2012 Maine made history affirming by popular vote marriage equality for loving, committed same-sex couples. The law will go into effect on December 29, 2012.
To help win in Maine, HRC:
- Contributed more than $840,000 to advance marriage equality.
- Sent nearly 85,000 emails to HRC members and supporters.
- Recruited several hundred volunteers and sent nearly half a dozen HRC staff to Maine, including critical field and faith-based organizing support for the duration of the campaign.
