On May 6, 2009 Maine ended discrimination in marriage for same-sex couples. This victory was the result of thousands of people who came forward to support marriage for all Maine families. The legislature and Governor followed the people's lead and passed this landmark legislation.
But the fight is just beginning. Opponents of marriage equality want to turn back the clock. They are working to place a measure on the ballot - modeled after California's Prop 8 - to take away the right of same-sex couples to marry in Maine.
The opposition must collect 55,087 signatures to place this measure on the ballot, so we are trying to raise $55,087 online during our first two weeks to show our support of marriage equality.
In November, voters will be asked if they want to overturn the law.
Please, join us in making sure we protect marriage for ALL Maine families.
