We have set up the HRC Action Line - a toll-free number to allow you to call your member of Congress at this critical time.




What's happening: this week, the United States Senate held their third hearing on efforts to write discrimination against same sex couples into the Constitution. Next week the House will be holding their first in a series of hearings on efforts to change the constitution - and a vote seems likely to happen by the end of the summer in Congress. It's critical that we get as many calls into congressional offices now in order to demonstrate strong opposition to any effort to change the constitution.




Call the HRC Action Line at 1-800-509-0176. You will be prompted to enter your ZIP code.




Keep these talking points in front of you when you make the call. Tell your Member of Congress:




• You oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment, and you urge them to oppose this legislation - and ANY amendment to the Constitution on marriage;

• These amendments would write discrimination into the Constitution - constitutional amendments have historically been about protecting and expanding rights, not about discrimination


The HRC Action Line will only be active from now until Friday - so please call 1-800-509-0176 today!




Forward this message widely!

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately my congressman is Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, who thinks he is living in the 14th Century. Nevertheless I emailed him the other day and will also call. THIS POST SHOULD BE ON MESSAGE CENTER. This is an important "message" that goes beyond politics.
