Scouting around the web, I found this update about the No Prop 102 campaign. http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/200.../2756#comments
I signed up to volunteer easily a month ago and have not heard back so much as an email or a phone call. According to this update, the campaign has very limited resources and is focusing on Pima County (that's Tucson, a more progressive city, and it was Pima Cty that really delivered the fatal blow to Prop 107 2 years ago.) I understand we need to win in Pima Cty, but we also cannot afford to lose by any kind of margin at all in Maricopa Cty - that's Phoenix area, where I am.
If anyone is in a position to help out financially with this campaign, or know someone who might be, please bring Arizona to that person's attention.
Prayers are golden, too. We have to have hope. After all, we DID defeat a marriage amendment before. We were the first in the nation. Please don't give up on Arizona. If you can help, please do. Please send us your prayers, and your love, too.
We are keeping our fingers crossed here in Michigan! I am trying to get the word out about marriage equality. I am sending in edatorials, talking to people about the fact I have no rights for my new wife and also what we are not able to have in protection for our families. I have joined the HRC, the Triangle Foundation(now here in Grand Rapids)! and also anything I can do for signing potitions.
I know its not much for Arizona, but I figure maybe, as we all are connected by about 6 people, all the online communities etc, someone will get the message there and vote against the amendment. Trying to do what we can here.
Also, my best friend lives in CA, and her family lives in AZ. She is also telling them to vote against it and tell all their friends also. THey are amazingly supportive of all the whole LGBT rights.
Until then, we will pray to all the Gods and Goddesses we know of!
