Letter Writing Campaign.....Civil Unions Legislation

I am asking you to mount a widespread letter writing, phone calling, FAXing and emailing campaign to all of the following contacts. I am asking you to pass all of this information along to all of your email contacts, blogging contacts, and family and friends. Please, reproduce this information, post it, blog it, email it...anything! Anyone who is concerned for fairness in our state is welcomed to participate. I ask you to be polite, professional, and abstain from profanity or rudeness. Please, start today! Time is of the essence. I realize that it will take a little bit of your time and effort to get this accomplished. The results may very well be unmeasurable. All of these people need to know that their actions are not welcomed and we do not believe in inequality in Oregon nor anywhere else.

ya know what really sucks?
Prisoners-men and women who have
raped, murdered, robbed and beaten
people have more rights than the
gays and lesbians.
I'll help anyway I can.

As a friend said recently "if your email has volume, turn it up because I am yelling!"

I have written them all and more....time for a new keyboard.

Lets stand tall together in unity!

I think it's fantastic that you emphasize being polite, because nobody ever really gets their point across my yelling.

I borrowed your text since it was already so perfectly written, and e-mail all addresses you listed. David's address is david@restoreamerica.org, so I included him too.

I also added a brief (but still friendly) reminder that America is supposed to mean equality for everyone, not just the ones that believe a certain way.
