Tuesday, the House of Representatives will vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment to ban marriage between same sex couples and write discrimination into the Constitution. Help us fight back -- tell your Representative to vote no today.
Just last month, the Senate held its own vote on the FMA. We asked fair-minded Americans to stand up for equality by contacting their Senators and urging them to vote no. The result? Hundreds of thousands of letters poured in to the Senate, and the extremist Senators pushing the FMA were unable to get a majority of their colleagues to support their agenda. You helped us keep discrimination out of the Constitution before -- now we need your help again to stop the FMA in the House.
Here’s what you can do:
1. Flood your Representative's inbox with email Write your Representative to let them know you strongly oppose the FMA. Tell your Representative that discrimination has no place in the Constitution. Click here to send your message now!
2. Overwhelm the House switchboard with calls. Call 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Representative’s office. Tell your Representative you strongly oppose the FMA. A sample script is below:
I am calling to urge you to vote no on the Federal Marriage Amendment.
Throughout American history, the Constitution has been amended to expandand protect the rights and liberties of the American people - it should notbe used to single out some Americans for discrimination.
The Federal Marriage Amendment would single out GLBT Americans for separate and unequal treatment in the U.S. Constitution, the very document that is supposed to guarantee Americans' equality.
Do not write discrimination into the Constitution; vote NO on the FederalMarriage Amendment.
Kate , Josh and I thank everyone for thier support ! We can't fight this alone!
