30 Jan 2004
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3
MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE
Training at 11am, followed by visits to your representative & senator.
(Abbreviated training at 1pm if you cannot come at 11)
(Allow extra half hour to get through State House security).
We need supporters from throughout the state to meet with all legislators! Please register at: www.massequality.org/lobby_day.php so we know whom to expect.
Can't Make Lobby Day?
Set Up Your Own Meeting
If you cannot make Lobby Day, please try to schedule an in-person meeting with your state representative and state senator before February 11. A face-to-face visit with an elected official can make all the difference -- experience shows that legislators are moved and persuaded when they hear personal stories about the importance of equal marriage rights from their constituents.
Find out who your representative and senator are at www.massequality.org/rep_and_sen.php. Call their office make an appointment. Legislators can meet with you at the State House or in their local district office. Please let us know when you have scheduled a meeting by emailing lobbyday (at) massequality.org.
Call Your Legislator and
Ask Friends to Do the Same
Finally, MassEquality is hosting Community Phone Banking nearly every day between now and February 9. At these phone banking sites, volunteers call family and friends for support while having fun with other supporters. Please sign up for an afternoon or evening of calling: www.massequality.org/phone_call.php
AT A MINIMUM: If you have not yet called your legislators in support of the Goodridge marriage decision and against any amendment to the Massachusetts Constitution that would take away equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, please do so today. Get their phone numbers at www.massequality.org/start.php. If you've already called, THANK YOU!
Together, we are making history!
