April 19, 2009


Here was NOM's first media foray after the Paterson announcement: No big flashy display and no attention-grabbing; just an attempt to speak directly to Latinos in their language. In other words, a similar under-the-radar strategy that foes of marriage equality in California used with minority communities in their successful defeat of Prop. 8.
