The people deserve a vote

The time is now. We’re calling for the State Senate to allow the marriage bill to the floor for a vote, and your senator needs to hear from you. Call now!

We agree with Governor Cuomo that the people deserve a vote, and that New Yorkers need to know where their senators stand on marriage for all loving, committed same-sex couples. The end of the session is grinding on, and there are a number of issues yet to be resolved, but marriage equality is very much alive and in the mix. We urge you to pick up the phone right now and call your senator - no matter what their position may be.

As legislators continue working late into the session can you make the call right now? If you haven’t used our click-to-call tool, or even called your senator ever before, now’s the time to stake a claim in this movement and be a part of this historic moment. You simply enter your name, phone number and address, and we’ll immediately patch you through to your senator’s office. Leave a message or tell the person on the phone your name, your address, that you’re a constituent who supports marriage equality and that New Yorkers deserve the bill to come to the floor and pass.

We are standing on the cusp of equality. The hours ahead could determine the next few years for our movement. Supporters like you got us here and will get us where we need to go. Please make the call for equality now.

With fierce pride and determination,

Ross D. Levi
Executive Director
