(…please note my comedy partner and I were interviewed for a feminist podcast/blog today…and it was glorious…)
As you may know, Illinois is the next state ready to vote on Marriage Equality and we want to continue with the amazing progress we’ve been making as a country. I have been volunteering for Marriage Equality for the past year (and even walked with them in the Gay Pride Parade) and it has been a very rewarding experience to see how our hard work has paid off!
The last phone banks of the year are happening tonight (Monday 5/20) and Thursday (5/23) at their phone bank conveniently located right near Port Authority. Obviously no pay, but it’s super easy (you get a script and make some calls to people in Illinois) and you get FREE PIZZA! Plus, all the volunteers are super nice and you can donate as much or as little time as you have. Even an hour makes a difference!

Although we may be celebrating our third marriage equality victory with Minnesota’s win this week, we can’t stop now! Join the Marriage Equality USA’s National Equality Action Team (NEAT) for a final push for marriage equality in Illinois!
