An amendment to the Michigan constitution is in the works that would ban gay marriage and undermine domestic partner benefits for both straight and gay people. The wording on the petition endorsing the amendment reads:
"To secure and preserve the benefits of marriage for our society and for future generations of children, the union of one man and one woman in marriage shall be the only agreement recognized as a marriage or similar union for any purpose."
Coalition for a Fair Michigan has info and opportunities for activism on this important issue. Ann Arborites can contact Liz Goodnick at [email protected] or Lori Watson at [email protected] -- they could really use money and volunteers for house parties or canvassing (2-3 hours on Saturdays). And please vote 'NO' on November 2!
