ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 AT 11:00 AM, THE NEW JERSEY SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE IS HOLDING A HEARING AND VOTE ON S. 1, THE NEWLY REINTRODUCED MARRIAGE EQUALITY BILL. JOIN US! ARRIVE AS EARLY AS YOU CAN.
Please meet us as early as possible on Tuesday morning at the State House, 125 West State Street, Trenton. You can park at the Trenton Marriott, 1 West Lafayette Street, only three blocks from the State House, and then walk to the State House. You cannot arrive too early. We will be at the State House at the crack of dawn. The hearing room will be jammed and our anti-equality opponents intend to pack the room. Please wear your EQUALITY The American Dream t-shirt from two years ago if you have one. If ever there was a day to take off from work - which we don't ask you too often - this is it, history in the making.
WE ARE COMPILING WITNESSES TO TESTIFY FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY. We are specifically seeking:
Civil union couples who have faced difficulties with the civil union law.
Civil union couples who want to talk about what the deprivation of marriage equality means to them.
Parents or other loved ones of LGBT youth.
Supporters of marriage equality, straight or LGBT.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO TESTIFY, PLEASE E-MAIL Testify@GardenStateEquality.org, put TESTIFY in the subject header, and include in the email your name, town and the easiest phone number at which to reach you, which we will not give to anyone. Please also include which category above applies to you, or any other category or anything else relevant.
Whether or not you want to testify, we beg you to join us. We need a massive crowd. Right now, please forward this email to every supportive friend and colleague you have and to every blog and list serv of which you are a member.
Questions? Steven Goldstein is at cell (917) 449-8918.
Thank you, the world's greatest members, for never giving up. GAME ON AGAIN!
