Pro-Equality Catholics & Families Needed in Annapolis!
House Hearing on Marriage Equality will be Held This Friday, February 10th
ANNAPOLIS - This Friday, February 10th, 9am-7pm ,the Maryland House of Delegates is holding a hearing in Annapolis on The Civil Marriage Protection Act of 2012. Testimony will be heard in two shifts: 9am-2pm and 2pm-7pm.
Anti-equality Catholic groups like the National Organization for Marriage and the Maryland Catholic Conference are sure to be there, attempting to scare legislators into voting against loving and committed families. It is crucial that our voices are there to assure our policy makers that Maryland Catholics support fairness and equality, including civil marriage equality. This is one of the most important times we as Catholics can make a difference on this issue.
Can you, and if possible with Catholic family members - as a family, join Maryland Catholics for Equality and testify with us at the hearing? If so, please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also need to fill the audience with pro-equality Catholics. Whether you hope to testify or not, if you can attend the hearing, we need you there. Everyone is encouraged to RSVP for the hearing at http://bit.ly/waJVx7.
