Today, MassEquality is launching My.MassEquality.Org, a new online organizing website to help supporters of equality organize their friends and family as we all work together to fight the discriminatory anti-gay ballot amendment.
We’d like to invite all BMG supporters of marriage equality to check out our new website, create a personal page, and invite your friends and family to join the fight to protect marriage equality.
The amendment, which passed the Legislature in January with 62 votes, now faces a second round of consideration. Supporters of equality currently need to gain eight more votes to win. The amendment requires only 50 legislative votes to be placed on the November 2008 ballot.
We are grateful for the many supporters who have already taken a stand for equality. But if we are going to keep this discriminatory amendment off the ballot, we need many more people across the state to get involved – and the best person to get your friends and family involved is you! That’s why we need your help to make sure every supporter across the state talks to their legislators before the next vote.
Here are some of the many things you can do with My.MassEquality.Org:
1)Create your own personal homepage about why marriage equality matters to you
2)Track your progress in organizing your friends and family and getting them to take action
3)Win prizes by motivating your friends and family to contact their legislators
4)Use easy tools to contact your legislators, write a letter to your local paper, donate, or sign up to volunteer
5)Find events in your area or create your own pages to invite family and friends to your equality activities
6)Post messages on your own Equality Journal
There are 57 legislators who have said in the past that they would vote against marriage equality – we need to change the minds of at least 8 of them before the next Constitutional Convention. We can do it, but we need your help.
We hope you’ll come sign up at My.MassEquality.Org today!
