Eighteen months ago, TakeAction Minnesota organizational member OutFront Minnesota joined Project 515 to launch Minnesotans United for All Families, the campaign to defeat the amendment.
Together, they built the largest grassroots campaign Minnesota has ever seen: close to 700 coalition partners, 27,000 volunteers, 67,000 donors and 1.3 million voters who said no to amending the state’s constitution. Their work led us to make history as the first state in the nation to defeat a constitutional amendment to limit the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.
At the same time, the tireless OutFront joined us in the campaign to defeat the Voter Restriction Amendment and worked to elect a pro-LGBT equality majority in both the house and senate.
But they’re just getting started. OutFront is ready to move from no to yes — yes to the freedom to marry and legal recognition for same-sex couples in Minnesota.
We can’t wait to join them in this fight in 2013. Be a part of this amazing campaign from the start, take a deeper look at the issues facing the LGBTQ community, and celebrate our amazing Election Day victories on December 1 at OutFront Minnesota’s Equality & Justice Summit on December 1.
