Take Action for marriage equality in New Hampshire
This just in from Concord: this Wednesday, March 21, the New Hampshire House will vote on HB 437 — the bill that would repeal the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in the Granite State.
Between now and Wednesday, we’re joining with Standing Up for New Hampshire Families to show state legislators the strength of our grassroots movement to defend marriage equality in N.H. We need your help. We’ve set a goal of generating 6,200 messages from New Hampshire voters asking their representatives to oppose HB 437 by Wednesday morning.
Will you be one of the 6,200+ supporters who are defending marriage equality in New Hampshire this week? Click here to take action now.
Marriage equality supporters like you have less than three days to send a message to your state representatives: taking away freedoms is not the New Hampshire way. Opponents of marriage equality, led by the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage (NOM), have fully ramped up their scare tactic campaign — complete with deceiving mailers, bogus ads, robocalls and well-funded lobbyists in Concord who are spreading lies about same-sex couples and their families.
You and I know what‘s really at stake here: loving and committed couples who just want to protect their families in the state they call home. Over 1,800 couples have married in New Hampshire since marriage equality became law in 2009. And now we have less than three days to ensure that NH State representatives aren’t fooled by NOM’s propaganda and oppose this harmful bill.
Sending 6,200 messages to Concord will let undecided representatives know that if they do the right thing and vote NO on HB 437, their constituents will have their back.
But if we want to reach our goal we have to get to work now! E-mail your legislators now and then ask your friends to do the same to help us reach this critical milestone of 6,200 messages by Wednesday.
Defeating this attack on N.H. families won’t be easy, but with thousands of supporters like you taking action today, we can stop NOM in their tracks.
