Here's an urgent message from Equality Maine about this Wednesday's hearing on their marriage equality bill:
April 22,2009 9:00 am
Maine’s marriage campaign is moving to the next level. The hearing on the marriage bill has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 22 at the Augusta Civic Center. Make no mistake about it: April 22 will be the single most important day of this campaign outside of the final vote. The media, legislators, governor, and people of Maine will be watching. We need you there.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for the marriage bill hearing. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number.
Our opponents already announced they will have over 1,000 people at the hearing. We cannot let them outnumber us on this critical day. The LGBT and allied community must come together like never before.
Please plan to bring your friends, family and children with you – this will be a family-friendly event. RSVP at email@example.com. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number. Once you RSVP, our staff will be in touch with important details about the hearing. Space will be limited, so we have to be organized and arrive early.
Augusta Civic Center
76 Community Dr.
Augusta, ME 04330

The Maine newspaper writes in support of the actions taken in Iowa and Vermont to uphold the freedom to marry for gay couples, and says, "Maine should also turn this corner, not because Vermont did, but because equality, which is guaranteed by our Constitution, demands it." (Link)
