Calling all Volunteers! Marriage Equality
---------------------------
There are only 16 days left until the Constitutional Convention
scheduled
for May 10th when legislators will consider a constitutional amendment
to
ban same-sex marriage.

We could lose marriage equality in Massachusetts.

Volunteers are critically needed.

Please join us at MassEquality and help ensure that equal marriage
rights
are protected in the Commonwealth. Any amount of time you can commit,
from
one hour to one day, will impact the outcome of this potentially
crippling
vote. Contact Deirdra Dostou, Volunteer Coordinator, with any
questions
at DeirdraDostou@MassEquality.org or (617) 878-2356.
