Help defend the freedom to marry in Iowa!
Please call your state lawmakers today!

Last Friday, thousands of proud Iowans gathered across the state to celebrate the unanimous Supreme Court decision granting same-sex couples the freedom to marry in Iowa. Unfortunately, opponents of equality are pushing a divisive agenda during a time when Iowa is facing record challenges. Today, right-wing forces will be rallying in Des Moines to press the state Legislature to pass a constitutional amendment that would deny the freedom to marry to same-sex couples.

The Supreme Court, governor, legislative leadership and the attorney general have all spoken. Now your legislators need to hear from more fair-minded people like you. They need to hear from their constituents that elected officials should focus on issues of common concern rather than play politics with the Iowa Constitution.

You can find out who your legislators are by visiting http://www.legis.state.ia.us/FindLeg/. Call or e-mail your senator and House member today. Here’s a sample of what to say:

“As an Iowan, I’m proud that our state has taken the lead by granting the freedom to marry to caring, committed same-sex couples. I support this historic decision and want to see it upheld. Please don't amend the Constitution to take away the freedom to marry.”
