This week, Minnesota made HISTORY by being the first state to vote down a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. While this is not the complete victory toward equality that occurred in Maine, Maryland, and Washington state (where voters approved legal marriage between two adults, regardless of gender!) it’s an amazing first step. This is a watershed moment towards a Minnesota united by love, not fear.
Minnesota NOW was one of the first coalition partners in Minnesotans United for All Families, the group the spearheaded the amendment defeat, and we were proud to have Richard Carlbom, MN United’s Executive Director, as one of the speakers at our 2012 State Conference. We are so proud of the work that MN NOW members, coalition partners, and community friends put into this important election effort! THANK YOU!
With LOVE as our inspiration, we’ve designed a gorgeous new T-shirt that we hope will inspire you to join our Feminist Action Network. When you sign up to be a FAN, you pledge to contribute as little as $10 a month to ensure that our small but efficient organization works toward our feminist future–and you’ll get our new shirt as our thank you gift! The shirts are 100% cotton, deep purple, with “Love starts here” on the front and “Love starts NOW” on the back.
