Because I believe in equal protection under law, because I don’t like it when some people tell other people how to live their lives, and because I wouldn’t want government to try and ban MY marriage, I’ll be voting NO on Ballot Question 1 this November in Maine. Voting NO on 1 will keep same-sex marriage legal for all who want it in Maine.
But just Voting NO on 1 isn’t enough, because anti-equality forces are sending gobs of money into the state to try and convince Mainers that equality is overrated. Will they succeed? I don’t know, but they have a lot of money on their side, and for better or worse, money can accomplish a lot.
I want to help the NO on 1 / Protect Maine Equality Campaign in two ways, and I need your help. The first way is financial, and the second way is personal. With a $10 donation to NO on 1 / Protect Maine Equality, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you’ve helped promote marriage equality for everyone in the Pine Tree State.
But why stop there? Let’s make it personal. For every $10 you donate through this page, I pledge to walk 1 mile on Route 1 carrying a big sign reading “I’m Voting NO on 1: Ask Me Why!” sign, striking up as many conversations as I can along the way and carrying literature for people who want to learn a little bit more about the issues at stake. If you donate $100, I’ll walk 10 miles on Route 1. If you donate $500, I’ll walk 50 miles. If you donate $1,000? Well, I’ll need some new boots at the end, but it’ll be worth it. I’ll keep this image updated with your/my/our progress to let you know how far you and I are willing to go.
Click here to donate to NO on 1 / Protect Maine Equality and send me on my way. Thanks.
